|4 years 5 weeks ago||The current head coach at Crockett||
is my cousin. I actually met Brandon Graham when he was a high schooler and I was a sophomore at U of M. I went to a Crockett practice over the summer that year and I was just amazed at how outstanding of a leader this kid was and then when Rod told me that he was going to be a Wolverine, I got a man-boner. He's been a great ambassador for his high school, his university and I'm sure he will represent the Eagles very well in the community. Detroit needs more young men like Brandon Graham to be young leaders in their school and their communities. My cousin has been offered jobs at other schools outside of Detroit but he tends to stay because he feels like he can build something special and its good to see that BG gives back to the Crockett program and comes back to show these kids where hard work and determination can get you.

I was grabbing a slice of pizza somewhere in Wrigleyville after a night of drinking with some friends and two guys sit at a two seater next to our table. One guy is wearing an Illinois windbreaker and he is obviously intoxicated. We start talking football and I casually mention how I thought Notre Dame was an overrated program. This clown in the Illinois windbreaker takes offense to this comment because he apparently had just gotten accepted to law school at ND. That was weird enough but then this guy goes on this absurd rant about how Illinois kicked our ass this year and how much Michigan sucked. I bought up the fact that they have beaten us like three times in last 35 or so years and then we leave the pizzeria. My friend and I are walking down the street a couple of blocks away when this same asshat in the windbreaker comes sprinting down the street screaming at me about how he was " a former state champion wrestler" and how he was going to kick my ass. That's when my friend ( who just happens to be in the Army and very good at his job) decides to step in on my behalf. After my buddy threatened the guy and took off his coat, the Windbreaking Illini casually retreated and even apologized.
