alternate headline: man does job
Maybe this is old news, but ...
I was channel surfing last night and found a live broadcast of an international competition of 2-man bobsled. I watched for a while and when the U.S. team took their run, I noticed a familiar name: Sam McGuffie. He is the brakeman for team USA 2-man bobsled (Steven Holcomb is the pilot).
They had a poor run (due to equipment issues with the sled) and finished 12th in the competition.
In any event, I found it interesting that Sam was now competing at a top level in international bobsled and thought I'd share.
Here is a video of Sam McGuffie doing a 58" vertical leap.
Sam is working out in hopes of getting another chance in the NFL.
A new Youtube video is a well-done 6-minute long video of the greatest moments in the history of sports.
It's a bit heavy on Jordan, Ali and Vince Carter dunks, but there are some Michigan clips that are included:
- Desmond striking the pose
- Webber's timeout
- Sam McGuffie hurdling his HS opponent
- Brady during the Patriots' SB celebration
Here's an update on HS Internet sensation RB Sam McGuffie. He is working out at WR to become an all-purpose offensive player.
Purdue is playing at Rice tomorrow, so I wandered over to Rice's athletics website. Before you enter the site, there's a splash screen ad for their home games and it includes a huge picture of Sam running the ball.
I took a look at last week's box score against Texas and McGuffie only had one carry for four yards. Meanwhile, they had 5 other running backs with more carries than him. I figured he'd be a central part of their running game this year, but I guess not. Do any MGoBloggers in the Houston area follow Rice and know how he's doing?
In this Rivals article on impact transfers you'll see three former Wolverines (Clemons, McGuffie, and Threet) in the featured list and another one (O'Neill) in the smaller list.
Which one was the biggest loss? I think McGuffie is the pick. I'd prefer him at slot receiver, though.
Who will make the biggest impact at their new school? Sam, again, I think.
