Bell's Night

The all-star game left Bell unscathed, but not his teammate

Sorry for the delay, but I was horrifically tied up yesterday in my company's sexual harassment seminar, (no pun intended), and was unable to relay some of what I found out about incoming freshman QB Jerry Bell's night at the Texas High School Coaches Association all-star game.

Most importantly, Bell was not injured in the game. His fellow QB on the South team can't same the same unfortunately, as he tore his ACL! So again, remember to always be thankful for health overall.

Despite some incorrect reports, Bell passed for about 85 yards, (don't pay attention to the incorrect box score), and did not have a TD pass. He had two picks, but one was on a busted play-deflection.

Nothing spectacular, but the fact that he was starting in such a prestigious game was a victory in and of itself.


Please note the new disclaimer, (the facts are old, the actual publishing of them in that spot is new), in the title page of the blog above. It's important to remember that this site is not an official, or even unofficial voice of CU and should not be mistaked for that. While I do work as an outside contractor broadcasting the football games, I am not on the official payroll.

Great opportunity for Columbia Football to capitalize on Jerry Bell's appearance in the Texas High School Coaches All-Star Game as Bell was the only selection from the Ivy League. Hopefully, we can recruit a couple more outstanding players from Texas next year. Incidentally, Bell did just fine in the Texas All-Star game as no one really expects the quarterbacks to throw for huge yardage when they have only practiced with their receivers for a short time.

That level of HS football is tremendous. I have spent a lot of time in that part of the world and there is just no comparison with almost anyplace else except perhaps Florida and Southern California.
