Back in 2013, some of my friends in Northern Virginia were talking about this high school quarterback from Loudon County who had led his team at Briar Woods to three state championships. He was only rated a 3-star prospect, and many schools projected him as a defensive back in college because he was just 5-10. He was tough as nails thanks to his daddy who played at Richmond, and wanted to be a quarterback. Not a safety...a quarterback.
In our country’s history, we’ve had some of our greatest athletes become political leaders. From basketball to football to baseball, some of the USA’s top athletes have gone on to become Governors and Senators.
We bring a 14-7 record into this week's games. I'm looking forward to the Louisville-NC State game Thursday night. The weekend's best game might be Stanford-Utah. These Pac-12 games (aka, Pac-12 After Dark) are always terrific and so this weekend's primary goal: Stay up late to watch Bryce Love carry the football.
