Born and raised in Columbus, OH. Went to Grove City HS, where I played football. Went into the Marine Corps after high school and I was stationed in Washington DC. Stayed in DC after I got out and have been enjoying life to the fullest!


  • SPORTS MOMENT: I was part of some really good high school football teams while at Grove City. We were near the top rankings in the state and country. My junior year we played Troy who had Ryan Brewer. It was an offensive slugfest that we wone 43-45, but it was amazing! Ryan Brewer scored about 4-5 different ways. My senior year we went undefeated and were ranked #1 in OH, #6 in the country before we lost in the playoffs in the 2nd round. We played a big game vs Canton McKinley and a couple games in the Crew's stadium. Insane atmospshere!

If they don't already, they should get personalized plates... Zeke15, OSURB15 or MVP 2015! Something along those lines!! I would hope that the ticketing ninja's would let them slide!

Well, I'm shocked he doesn't have his own "forever" parking spot!! All-Americans get a Buckeye Tree in Buckeye Grove... Heisman winners get a lot of perks, including reserved parking and shuttle service around campus... for life!!

Anybody order any jerseys recently? Finally getting around to order a "12 Gauge" or "Elliot" championship jersey and looking for a good merchant. Worried about sizing and sleeve length.

This is widely considered true, but the official flag etiquette is very vague and doesn't mention shirts.

Flag Etiquette states that the blue field just has to be at the top, not which side. However, it does say, "When displaying the flag against a wall, vertically or horizontally, the flag's union (stars) should be at the top, to the flag's own right, and to the observer's left."


FYI, the flag patch is displayed "backwards" on the sleeves of US Military Uniforms in some situations. The blue field is supposed to be facing the front direction (as in when the person in walking forward).

You might want to contact the DC Alumni Group. I'm sure they will be setting up a trip down there. They might be getting a bus or something like that??

I'm right there with ya. I live in N.VA, so it's about 3 hrs or so. Not too far, but the tickets are crazy right now! We are expecting our first child on July 3rd, so I guess I'll be on the couch introducing her to Buckeye Football!

You are exactly right. I'm sure Alabama's facilities are right up there with ours. Their trainers are right up there with ours. Our players were "hungry" and wanted it more, throughout the entire season and during the game. Half of the championship is won during the off season. The coaches and trainers can only do so much, there comes a point in which the player has to buy into the program and push themselves to get better! Its always harder to repeat as champions as players get complacent and aren't as "hungry" as they were the year before.

Although, sometimes players can stay hungry... *ichigan player stay hungry from I've been reading!! Of course, they haven't won anything in awhile, so....

I love how the LB falls flat on his face as Pryor is still 7 yards away from him!!

Comment 21 May 2015

I also seem to remember some PSU defenders (at least I think it was them) driving Braxton to the ground and injuring his shoulder.

Comment 19 May 2015

I think this is VERY likely! One way to get two QB's on the field at the same time. Just think, he gets the hand-off/pitch and runs wide a couple of times. Every so often he stops and tosses it to a wide open WR running up the sideline.

Also, keep in mind:

1) It keeps the corners/safeties honest and they can't come up for run support until he has crossed the line of scrimmage.

2) I'll take Braxton 1-on-1 vs ANY defenders in the country as he has the speed and moves to make people miss.

3) Running the sweeps will preserve his body as he'll be running toward the sidelines and not up the middle (too much).

4) Look for the triple pass: Cardale/JT pass(handoff) to Braxton who's sweeping left, but the defense has him stopped... oh wait, he throws it back to Cardale/JT on the other side of the field and Cardale/JT throws it 60 yards for a TD to a wide open Thomas!!

It was at the very end of the pictures (about 7-10 seconds of pictures). You can see the video if you go to the WH site and rewind it. They we all joking back and forth and I'm sure he just got caught up in the moment. Poor decision; however takes some guts to do that!

I imagine they will travel by buses and be let out on 17th street to walk up to the White House Security. You might be able to get up there and see them, BUT there are so many places to park and let them in that you'd be rolling the dice.
