Random Observations This Spring
A few random comments and observations for a Friday morning…
Kristin Graham, pitcher and first baseman on the softball team, was hitting .500 for the season before yesterday’s game. After going 0-2 yesterday, I wouldn’t want to be the pitcher facing her in the next game. Counting her walks, she gets on base almost 60% of the time.
In baseball, pitcher Aaron Elias has an impressive stat to go along with his 2.13 ERA. He’s struck out 34 batters while walking only 7 in over 42 innings. That’s a great strikeout/walk ratio in any league.
In football, spring practice continues. RB Jordan Allen looked great in practice yesterday. BigTexas Garrott is still showing why we have high expectations of him this season. Look up All-OVC in the dictionary, and you should see his picture. The defensive line continues to look great. We got to see some of the depth of the DL at practice yesterday, and King Kong Coulahan was impressive. The linebackers are talented, and will shine this season. Brooks Robinson was making plays at safety as Keginald Harris was sitting out. One exciting addition to the JSU defense for this season is D-Coordinator Chris Boone. If you want to see the difference he makes, come to the spring game FRIDAY, APRIL 15 AT 6:00 PM.
NEXT WEEK…Softball plays at home on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. Baseball will WHUP TROY on Tuesday at 6:30 at home and will play at home again on Saturday. We’re calling out the students to show up for these games. One more week of school until finals begin. Let’s support our teams!
And next Friday is the Spring Football at 6PM. The students are having a JSU block party today from 4-6. Can we do it again next week? It would be awesome to tailgate from 4-6 and then go to the spring game. We hope to see you there.
