Wednesday AM Notes: Autotune gets Gay, Dinner at Frosty's, Picturing Reside, Updating the Up-and-Comers
Matthew Robertson sent us the above video Monday but I forgot about it until now. Maybe because that damned song was stuck in my head all day Monday. The auto-tune superstar is none other than Jackson QB Andy Gay. Robertson is behind the production both musically and visually, obviously. Say what you want, but this is pretty good stuff. I mean, it's better than some T-Pain or Ron Browz songs/videos, and both of those fools went platinum. Way to go MattRob.
Stopped by practice briefly today...RB Brennan Frost was sidelined, awaiting delivery of a new custom knee brace. Frost informed us that he and his family are hosting the final team dinner Thursday night at his home. Frost further asked us to invite interested parents and family of players. If you need info or directions, email me at Kevin.Hulten@gmail.com.
A couple links you should be aware of: First, we updated Tyler Reside's injury post with three Rob Carlson photos of the scene. Check it out.
Second, we posted Rob Carlson's Photo Diary from Oak Harbor, featuring 15 game photos. Contact me or leave a comment if you are interested in reprints.
Third, check out Mike Cane's Time Out piece on Brennan Frost from Tuesday's Herald. I am also working on a long-lead feature story on Frosty that will run in an upcoming Lake Stevens Journal.
Finally, a couple notes from the JV squad's season ending 31-17 victory over Oak Harbor Monday:
--- Sophomore Brady Pahukoa got the nod at QB and looked good, throwing for two touchdowns. Pahukoa also started at safety and served as the punt returner and the punter. This kid is going to be a great one before he is done, IMO.
---Junior RB J.T. Cox had a great game, running hard between the tackles. After getting yanked following a fumble last Friday at Oak Habor (and replaced by Brandon Belcher at fullback), Cox was back with the first team at times today.
---Coaches singled out a player with the last name of Gershmeil (or something similiar, sorry, he isn't listed on any of the rosters I have...), crediting him with the game winning 50 yard fumble recovery return on defense. Commenters, please leave me this guy's name, grade and position and I will edit this.
---Sophomore slot receiver Joey Dosen led the team with seven receptions, including a touchdown.
---Sophomore OT Cody Tupen (brother of Colton) apparently dominated at the point of attack. In a related story, Tupen worked with the number one offense today at practice.
All for now, more tomorrow including our second-to-last edition of Wesco Power Rankings.
