Came across an SI article on our walk-on safety Jordan Kovacs. I always like reading stories like this, its almost like we have our own Rudy (minus the suck).
Jordan Kovacs Article
Always good to see a walk-on get PT.
And by always, I mean when we're up 25 on Delaware St.
Still, Kovacs played pretty good in limited exposure.
Great article. As a corollary to this,
GBMW is reporting that Vlad has an injury and may redshirt this year. If that's the case, we are going to be seeing a lot more of Mr. Kovacs.
"Not only does he try out and make the team, now he's in there playing at safety playing at safety in the middle of crunch time on national TV against Notre Dame. To me, that's pretty special."
From what I saw, I thought he did a great did a great job and I always appreciate stories like this.
I also admire players who will continue to play through injury wherever possible, but I'm mildly concerned about his categorical aversion to notifying the staff of any non-fatal injuries. I think (and hope) Kovacs has a better idea where that line lies than this article makes it appear.
Feel bad he lost a year.
Last year was like a redshirt year.
and thanks for sharing. I hope he continues to do well because he has got heart. You would have seen my as* as the team manager.
Jordan has already played more than his dad in his entire career. His dad got in for 3 minutes against Purdue his senior year and that was it. Bo gave him Scout team player of the week a couple times, but he never went on a road trip with the team until the Rose Bowl his senior year. See Toledo Blade article from 1983 -
hey rdlwolverine...nice find! ^^
Walter? Does he wear a mask and punish criminals during the night?
Kovacs looked ok to a little better than ok in his play out there ... he did bust the first 2-pt convo up and he's only a redshirt freshman ... could this possibly turn into shades of wisconsin's secondary
Kovacs is about to drop some dollars
