SUPER BOWL SUNDAY!!!First and foremost, gotta give a big shout out to former Bearcat Dave Tollefson, DE for the New York Giants and the now reigning NFL World Champs! Once just a walk-on at NWMSU, Dave now has his second Super Bowl ring! Couldn’t be happier for the guy and you better believe I let everyone know at the super bowl party that I had a Bearcat on the squad!
One of Derrick’s friends he went to high school with was Bobby Wade, who I also got to
know a little better. He started asking me about football so I
asked him if he played ball. Turns out
he had been a receiver in the NFL for 8 years and had just retired after 2009
when he was with the KC Cheifs for a year. Feeling like an idiot, I googled him real quick on my phone to get some background. Thank the lord for technology!
He was real down to earth and gave me some good advice. Of course I had a about 1,000 questions I
wanted to ask but I limited it to only 100 or so…I told him I was going to be
in town for a couple of months and he said he would stop by sometime and help me
out with some route running.
On a Side Note: Found a local church just 2 miles away call New Heights and really liked it. The people were very friendly and I plan to go back next Sunday.
