Well, it's official, Trinity is your 2012 SCAC football champions.

WTF, you say?  Me too, but per a release from SCAC HQ "[f]or purposes of determining the SCAC champion, games against Southern Athletic Association members count toward the conference standings, as well as the Austin College vs. Trinity game on Nov. 10."

I imagine this will not be the case next year, when there will actually be enough teams to make in-conference results more meaningful. 

Here's the release - http://scacsports.com/sports/fball/2012-13/releases/trinity_wins_scac_championship

You Tube clip of the Flyover at Austin College's Homecoming game on Saturday vs. Centre.  The anthem is sung by  Alumni choir members  who do this every year at Homecoming.  The jet is a F/A-18 fighter and is piloted by Lieutenant Ross “Jackpot” Jackson (Class of ’02).  For more information, please see below the YouTube link below.  It was a great sight to see and I got to talk to "Jackpot" at halftime.  After meeting him it is once again clear to see why we need to be proud of those who serve in our Armed Forces!

Top Gun Pilot to Fly Over

Lieutenant Ross “Jackpot” Jackson ’02 will fly a U.S. Navy F/A-18 jet from North Texas Regional Airport at Perrin Field southward directly over Apple Stadium at 12:58 p.m. on Saturday, October 27.

This spectacular event will honor the men and women of the United States military as part of the Austin College Homecoming celebration. The flyover will coincide with the presentation of the national anthem prior to the 1 p.m. kickoff of the Homecoming football game. Jackson is a member of the 10-year reunion class.

Jackson, originally of Georgetown, Texas, graduated magna cum laude from Austin College in 2002. He was commissioned as an ensign in Pensacola, Florida, after completing Officer Candidate School in November 2004.

Following flight training in Corpus Christi and Kingsville, Texas, Jackson was designated a naval aviator in March 2007. He completed training in the F/A-18 Super Hornet at NAS Lemoore, California, in March 2008, earning Top Hook awards for carrier qualification in both the T-45 and F/A-18F during his flight training.

Jackson reported to the Black Knights of Strike Fighter Squadron 154 at Naval Air Station Lemoore, California, flying the F/A-18F Super Hornet, in March 2008.  During this tour, deployed aboard the USS John C. Stennis and the USS Ronald Reagan, he served as the squadron Air-to-Ground Weapons Training Officer as well has head landing signals officer.

In March 2011, Jackson reported to the United States Navy Fighter Weapons School, Top Gun.  After graduating from the course, he joined the staff as a Top Gun PGUN Instructor Pilot and now serves as the U.S. Navy’s Subject Matter Expert for both the AIM-9 Sidewinder and Aerial Gunnery. At Top Gun, he flies the F/A-18 Hornet, F/A-18 Super Hornet, and F-16 Fighting Falcon.  During his career, he has accumulated more than 1,100 flight hours and more than 225 carrier-arrested landings.

Lt. Jackson now lives in Fallon, Nevada, with his wife, Rachel, and their sons, Otto and Everett.

Another Proud moment,
Not to be out done by Son #1,  Son Number#2 handed me the "Walnut & Bronze " In Salem a few years back ...... 8-)

(El Tea Gray--re: Trinity Tigers win "Old SCAC.)


Week 11----  Trinity  42        Austin College    13
Tigers win 6 game round-robin "Old SCAC" (5-1) ; season  (7-3).

3 losses:
UMHB, enough said!
Sul Ross, real D3 players?
Centre, who knows why, possibly QB problems?

Sounds like "sour-grapes"?  Not really, Tigers averaged 40+ points in their last three games. This team was "ready-for-some-football".   Well, maybe next year?

                                                                                        :)

So courtesy of our friends on the SAA board I see some company called "Harvard Pilgrim" is using the Trinity Miracle play video (sans acknowledgement of the teams involved) in some advertising.  See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDy959qrJj8 ... gotta wonder about their use of this.

You would think Harvard Pilgrim a large medical insurance company would at least make a donation to Trinity & Millsaps football.

Does anyone know where Nyk McKissic was in the last four weeks of the season?

He suffered a concussion in the Centre game and didn't return. The trainers advised him not to risk getting hurt further, since I believe he hopes to attend law school. I must say that Blashchke played very well the last three games, though. Next year Trinity should finally be able to run the option again, something they haven't done in about four years. In the final game against Austin College, Mckissic took the last snap of the game as an "honorary play" to close out his career - the sideline and stands went nuts.

Very happy Nyk was given the chance to close out his career.  What a shame about the concussion. 

Blaschke's a talent - he had some very nice throws on Saturday.  Just needs to work on the INTs a bit.  :-)

Bonzo,,, The Harvard Pilgrim use of the "Miracle" footage WAS widely discussed AND agreed upon.  This is copyrighted material that in this case benefited nicely to both programs.
