further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
For all you thrillseekers, EdgeWalk just opened on the top of the observation deck of the CN Tower here in downtown Toronto. For $175, you get a 90-minute experience which includes a 30-minute walk around the edge. That's 106 stories high in the open air with no safety net. My friend Mischa did it Monday for a birthday present to himself, here's the vid:
Last name seems familiar!
The original caption said "@nfeely drills a couple of 50 yard field goals in his first high school practice today for #2 ranked Armwood.
The No. 2 team in the nation is seemingly loaded at every position so why not kicker.
Nick Feely, from the first family of kickers in Tampa, will kick for the Hawks this season. Sidelined with an injury that threatened to prematurely end his football career, Feely is back and as strong as ever.
Participating at a University of Michigan camp earlier this offseason, Feely won everything, said his father, Tom, who trains several of the top kickers in the area.
"He's had a good summer," Tom Feely said.
It's been a two-year process to get Nick Feely back onto the field. He suffered severe breaks in his right leg and foot in a freak accident. Feely's older brothers, including Arizona Cardinals kicker Jay Feely, excelled at Jesuit.
At Monday's practice, Feely quickly endeared himself to his new teammates by nailing a pair of 50-yard field goals. Then he showed off his punting strengths. Even running back Matt Jones, sidelined with a knee injury, was impressed.
"This is a good fit for him," Tom Feely said. "He's real excited."
I know most of us figured this out already, just thought it was interesting to see how the coaching staff seems so in-control of the current recruiting situation. It's very reassuring to me.
@tomVH If you haven't figured it out yet, Ondre Pipkins told me today that he committed to Michigan last Thursday, which is why Schutt didn't visit
Tommy Schutt has picked PSU after being spurned by both ND and M. Good for him. I kinda felt a little bad for him. Glad to see him land at a good school.
They also picked up 4 star WR Eugene Lewis.
Nice night recruiting in Happy Valley.
Was wondering what everyone's opinion is. Personally I hope Shaw wins it. When healthy he in the past two years has been a strong runner with few mental mistakes.
247's new top 100 is out. UM has five with Kalis at 40, Wormley at 56, Magnuson at 63, Pipkins at 88, and Ross at 100. I remember TRich being high previously ( in the 30s I believe), and don't remember if they had Wormley that high. Nice to see Pipkins get the bump, and it looks like he will jump into the Rivals 100 when they update too.
