Yes, as 'twas yesterday, so it is today. Sad.

Yes, I agree! At the very least, they could regale us with tales of their feats on the golf course - like holes-in-one!

Well, if you'd like me to tell my hole in one story again, I will, but I'd rather not have Colonel John comment on how he didn't know that the hole I acheived the feat on was recently paved.

At least I struck up a mini conversation.

Any recruiting news? Which one of you losers is going to start the Wilkes BBall Super Blog to keep us informed on MAC Freedom updates over the summer? I'm looking your way Colonel John.

Ned: Next time you're with Homer...have him give us a Kings update...I think he's an alumnus.

Saratoga:

Here is some information on three incoming King's kids I have stuff on thus far.  Take it for what its worth - high school stats or honors don't necessarily mean anything one way or the other.

Ian Gilmartin - Pittston Seton Catholic - 6-6, 200 - forward
Averaged 20.8 ppg and 12.0 rebs.
Three-time Wyoming Valley Conference all-star, WVC Division III MVP as a senior.

Sean Kelly - Sullivan West High School  
Lake Huntington, NY - 6-0, 185
Combo Guard, 41-inch vertical leap.
Averaged 15.9 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists
Two-time Middletown, NY Times Herald all-star
Small high school, played out of position at forward as he was actually one of biggest kids on team and jumped very well.

Eric Krawawecz - St. Augustine Prep in Richland, NJ
6-1, 180 - shooting guard - 5.2 ppg, 31 three-pointers.
Sixth man and three-point shooting specialist on one of the traditional top programs in NJ. St. Augustine is a program consistently producing D-I players.  He was the first guard off the bench, playing behind two D-I scholarship recruits his senior year. One guard going to Rutgers, the other Monmouth. Team won one state title and three conference titles in his three years on varsity.  Former King's center Dave Marks played there and played behind three D-I post players during his career.  Would be fair to say he is an unknown commodity as he averaged around 13 minutes of playing time per-game. The St. Augustine coach told me he is an excellent three-point shooter with range. Time will tell.

I know there is a 6-8 kid coming in who is probably a year away and a very athletic, quick 6-0 transfer point guard who is expected to contribute right away but do not have any information on them at this point.

Thanks for the updates Bob...I thought Gilmartin was heading north on Rt.81...guess he made a wrong turn somewhere near Dupont and is currently in a southbound lane.

It's called "projection". You can't teach size(6'5") or 90+ mph. fastballs. What you can teach is how to pitch & not just "throw". Plus, the kid has virtually zero arm-wear so it's easy to take a chance in the 30th. round & hope for the best. Teach him a drop or slider that can be spotted, how to hit spots & develop a change that he can throw with confidence on 2-0 counts & who knows, he may end up like a kid from Wilkes did a few years back...in the Big Show.

Kevin Gryboski is still bringing it for the Braves as a relief pitcher. Did anyone see the miraculous one-handed catch he made yesterday as his head was nearly torn off by a line drive. I am not sure I have ever seen a greater act of self preservation in my life. He should be in the hospital but somehow got his bare hand up while divng to the ground and the ball wound up in his bare hand. He may have been killed if that ball hit him in the head.

Just a routine play for a Wilkes pitcher, they practice that very play every day.

Yeah, I believe it.   Former Wilkes pitcher Don Shaw is a good friend of mine and I always thought he may have taken a shot or two to the head - now I know that probably rings true   ;-)

Just wanted to congratulate Jerry Rickrode, head coach of the Wilkes Colonels.  I read in out local newspaper that Jerry scored a hole in one at Sand Springs golf course recently.  (This is usually the point where Colonel John mentions that he didn't know that hole was paved)  Now, unlike my feat on a par four, Jerry's was only on a par 3.  So Jerry, if you want some tips on making that hole in one a little longer next time, let me know.  Anyway, congratulations Coach.
