Thanks so much Jeremy for taking this picture. It couldn't be more perfect. Jake takes everyone up to his room to show the picture to them.
He is a huge Panthers fan, so much though that he lemented not being able to meet Graham Gano and Brad Nortman on the day he was a Captain. He has recently been upset that De'andre Presley would possibly not be back if the Panthers draft a WR. I was like "who??"
Anyway, word got back to Graham Gano about Jake missing meeting him and he sent Jake his signed jersey. I couldn't be a more proud to be a Panther fan!
Also thanks for asking about the 5k that we do each year. The website is down and being updated for 2015 but it is www.brookhavenfamilyrun.com all the proceeds go to PPMD in an effort to find a cure or even a treatment for these boys. Currently there is no cure or treatment but there are promising Rx being developed.
My wife Debbie volunteers every week at our son's school (she also runs the Brookhaven swim team, so you probably know who she is) and says that it always makes her day when she sees Jake in the hallway He always has a smile on his face and always has all of the other kids laughing.
"Randy Gregory may end up slipping in the NFL draft after it was revealed that he failed a drug test at the NFL combine last month."
"Gregory failed two drug tests in college and was a third strike away from being kicked off the team. His excuse for the positive test at the combine is also difficult to believe. He supposedly said he last smoked in December, but his THC levels were so high they triggered the positive test in February."
I know it is only pot, but these are definite red flags to teams.....can't believe he would not quit long before the combine. These players KNOW they drug test there.
The people who continuously make every excuse for Cam sound JUST LIKE the Atlanta fans who made every excuse for Vick (about how he had no WR's).....then they get rid of Vick and bring in Ryan and he has stellar seasons WITH THE SAME WR's.
I agree that the Panthers need to upgrade the OL and bring in more speed at WR.
But, Cam did have an All Pro LT for all but last season....and he did have multple top tier RB's....and he did have Smitth.
So, to say he had no OL and weapons his entire career is jus that.....an excuse for every flaw that he needs to work on.
This coach and staff speaks VERY HIGHLY of Cam and definitely views him as a franchise QB and the future of the Panthers. But, they are smart enough to see that Cam has many things to work on and improve for him to become elite....which is something that many in here are NOT smart enough to see.
This is certainly a do or die preseason for Panthers WR Stephen Hill. I feel the young,inexperienced Hill, may have developed enough, with the additional year of training, to win a roster spot. However,if i'm wrong in my assumption,he will be long gone.
I would love to see him win a spot and be the 4th WR.
