Short and Insufficient Profile: J.J. Housley

OK, so, during the dragging, sweaty, uncomfortable months of summer, we flippantly mentioned that we would be profiling every player on the team. It will only be fun and worthwhile, we decided, if we were both informative AND funny. Well, it would be really fun if we were drunk the entire time, but that’s neither here nor there. Thus, for these ten weeks leading up to the UL game, we will have at least one profile a day. We hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed the idea of doing them, but not the actual task. Oh, and we see the egregious “that’s what she said” in the headline.

We’d also like to use this italicized space to apologize to the families of the players whose last names end in ‘A’ or ‘B’ because these early ones might suck a little.

Housley, in action!

Boring, Obligatory Vitals





Position–Linebacker…I’m joking. Kicker

Hometown–Hazard, KY (Hazard)

Unfair comparison to NFL-er: Former kicker/golfer Al Del Greco.

Most interesting fact from his media guide bio: Finished ninth in the state golf tournament as a senior. Also, he has already participated in the school’s doctor of pharmacy program.

Something we made up about him: Full name is John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt Housley.

Items of legitimate interest: 9-10 career in PAT’s. Has been a member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll since 2006.

Outlook for 2008, based on light research by our minions: Will serve as a reserve place kicker, probably behind both Lones Seiber and Ryan Tydlacka.
