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.
Wait a second. That’s not football…
Boring, Obligatory Vitals
Unfair comparison to NFL-er: Vernon Gholston. Yeah. Their names are similar.
Most interesting fact from his media guide bio: His media guide bio does not exist, which is totally weak because it makes this impossible. If there was a bio, it would talk about him scoring 37 points in the Sweet 16 to help lead Ballard to the State Championship game.
Something we made up about him: Meant to walk-on to the basketball team, but showed up to the wrong meeting. Embarrassed, he just went with it.
Items of legitimate interest: Gholson was a walk-on receiver last year. He got injured a few months ago, and his status for the upcoming season is unknown—at least to Google.
Outlook for 2008, based on light research by our minions: He is quite low on the depth chart, so despite the status of his injury, seeing the field is probably not in his near future.
