Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.

A heads-up to anyone who is in the Ann Arbor area and wants to check out a lot of 2012 commits at once:
Farmington Hills Harrison takes on Cass Tech tonight at 8pm at Eastern Michigan University's Rynearson Stadium. Notable players include:
Farmington Hills Harrison: Mario Ojemudia (UM), Devin Funchess (UM), Aaron Burbridge (MSU, consensus 4*)
Cass Tech: Royce Jenkins-Stone (UM), Terry Richardson (UM), Laron Taylor (Iowa, 2* rivals, 3* scout, 3* 247sports), Ruben Lile (uncommitted, consensus 3*)
It should be a good game, as Cass Tech was unbeaten until it lost to Lake Orion last year in the Division 1 semifinals, while Harrison is the defending Division 2 state champion following a 14-0 season.
I've finally given up fighting with youtube, and realized that the only way I'm going to get Conway's video from Friday night up is by uploading it in poor quality, sans HD. You can find it here:
UPDATE!: I think I've won the HD battle, finally. The video in full quality should be available here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MRBoKQjzmo4
And I'll also link it in next week's Friday Night lights post for those who don't find it from this thread. For future weeks, I'm scrambling to find a way to get Youtube working with our replacement HD equipment, so please try to bear with me.
Does anybody here watch the Friday Night Lights TV show? Season 4 premieres tonight at 9 on DirecTV (The 101 is the name of the channel). I couldn't be more excited to see what happens with East Dillon High, and what happens with Riggins, Saracen, and the new characters they'll introduce at East Dillon.
The show is truly one of the best dramas on TV and a must watch for football fans. It really captures the emotions associated with high school football in small town Texas, and once you watch the pilot it'll suck you in and never let you go.
CLEAR EYES, FULL HEARTS, CAN'T LOSE!
