I love to see players that are either from or have played in this state do well, particularly football players. I don’t follow football past the college level much, but when I do it’s usually for a favorite player or local kid that I really enjoyed watching. After all, I have followed the Seahawks ever since Shaun went over to Seattle. :mrgreen:
I hadn’t heard of this guy making it until someone posted in the AL.com forums late yesterday:

Did any of you read it? We have the parents of a professional football player living in our community. Their son, Jerricho Cotchery plays for the New York Jets and bought the home for his parents. Now, that’s a good son.
I remember hearing his name a while back, but didn’t know he had moved on to the NFL. That’s awesome! Now I have another team to pull for. :mrgreen:
Way to go, Jerricho!
