Scott’s nephew exhibiting some Barnes-like tendencies …

And now, a moment to brag a little on my hard-working nephew. He transferred to a new school and is playing his senior year of football in Grand Rapids, MI. His first game? A nice little outing, 221 yards and 3 TDs in the air, 157 yards on the ground including a fourth TD on a 72-yard run. That’s a strong night’s effort. Here’s some video highlights. Skip forward to 0:45 if you want to bypass the hosts and get to the highlights.

He’s a great kid. I hope his team continues to have a good season. (Hopefully this video works here, BrightCove video is a little screwy in our WordPress install).

    That roll out pass to number 7 was a thing of beauty. Must admit the kid has some talent…best of luck to them. When do they get their star receiver back?

      Unfortunately, looks like he’s out 4-6 weeks. The team will have to win some big games, including one tonight against Muskeegon, a regular powerhouse of Michigan football.

    I’m exhausted just thinking about it … and that’s all I can do, no video for me (iPad). Congratulations! It sounds like an amazing game & many many yards! x
