Well Earth lives another day
Seems like some other planet outweighed Earth on the intergalactic planetary destiny scale. Earth is so luck. 5th time this year. Chances are Earth will survive through at least the draft.
Which is good because taking a trip to Earth is such a long trip and Momma Wedge worries about me away from home…
I don’t want to worry Momma Wedge. A worried Momma can do some irrational things.
Which brings me to Arkansas running back Alex Collins.
If Alex Collins Mom had her way we would’t saying “Arkansas” running back.
You see Alex Collins is a local product. He went to South Plantation High School, not too far from the Dolphins Davie Facility.
The highly touted high school running back, unfortunately didn’t get calls from college football powerhouses like Miami, Florida or Florida State.
Instead Arkansas sent a letter of intent to Alex Collins. And he was going to sign it…but….his Momma took the letter of intent and ran away with it. Momma Collins didn’t want her little baby going so fa away.
Well it was an easy fix for Arkansas. They just sent another letter of intent to Alex Collins father by fax.
And Alex Collins went to Arkansas and gained over 3800 yards from scrimmage in three years. And Momma Collins cried on every yard.
Collins did a little bit of everything for Arkansas. He ran the ball, he caught some passes, he blocked and he even returned kicks and punts.
No matter what he does, Collins has a real nose for the end zone scoring 36 TDs while at Arkansas.
He a fun runner to watch. In High School he ran track for South Plantation and you can see that speed on the field. Collins accelerate fast to the hole.
And Collins runs hungry. He fights for extra yards on every play. He’s a very physical runner punishing defenders.
But what really catches my eye with Collins is his balance.
He runs with incredible balance. He’s not easy to bring down because of it.
Sometimes he’s not easy to catch because of that balance. He changes direction with ease while the defenders try to change position and end up having to chase him.
Kind of reminds me a of certain scale. If Alex Collins was an Alien Weapon of Destruction, he would be a an Intergalactic Planetary Galactic Scale.
So let’s bring Alex Collins back to Miami….for his Momma!
