Happy Thanksgiving to all of the great readers of Webb Weekly. Early deadline this week, and my lovely editor just yelled. I am a part-time mobile scribe that already excels at procrastination.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of the great readers of Webb Weekly. Early deadline this week, and my lovely editor just yelled. I am a part-time mobile scribe that already excels at procrastination. I am now scrambling and desperately need to find a new hideout. The usual stop in Wegmans has too many distractions. I decided to go to a place much closer to home. Mark’s Family Restaurant on the Crick Road. I ordered a coffee and took a deep breath. Suddenly I heard a familiar SQUEAKY voice in the distance.
HEY FISHERMAN. REMEMBER I TOLD YOU THAT I WASN’T GETTING THOSE WEBB WEEKLYS? WELL I CALLED LIKE YOU SAID AND THEY GAVE ME A HAT… I REALLY LIKE THOSE FISHING STORIES. HAVE YOU BEEN UP PINE CREEK? I READ THAT ARTICLE ON THE POTTS KID. I DIDN’T SEE HIM AGAINST PENN STATE.
It was my friend, a retired teacher Wayne Stabley aka Squeak. I was rather polite and entertained his questions. After five minutes I then explained my situation and told him that I was on a deadline. I was still undecided and now in a panic. Every time Wayne spoke it shattered my concentration.
YOU KNOW I AM THE GAMES MANAGER AT WAHS. WE ARE HOSTING TWO FOOTBALL GAMES THIS WEEKEND. HEY. WHERE DID THE OTHER KIDS GO TO SCHOOL? THAT TEAM WAS A REALLY TALENTED. ARE THEY PLAYING? THE QB? WHAT WAS THE BIG GUYS NAME? THE TE? MAYBE YOU SHOULD WRITE ABOUT THAT.
It finally clicked. My man Wayne. Thanks for the hockey assist. I paid for my coffee and wished my friend a Happy Thanksgiving. I exited stage left and finished this article in the comfort on my car.
Freshman Joe Fagnano is really playing well. The 18-year-old quarterback got the call six weeks in and is now the starter for the University of Maine. The 6’3” 215lb youngster made an immediate impact and threw for an incredible 445 yards and 5 TDS in his debut. Joe was named the CAA’s player of the week and continues to help a 6-5 Black Bear team that has won its last four games. Fagnano has completed 68% of his passes and has thrown for 1,652 yards. He has 16 TDS and only 3 interceptions. That’s great stuff. Way to go Joe.
Big Kurt Danneker is a staple on the line for the University of Ohio. The 6’3 320lb redshirt Freshman has started several games at Offensive Guard. Kurt is a talented kid who graduated from high school a semester early. He has helped the 5-6 Bobcats hang tough in a very solid conference. Unfortunately the big guys up front don’t have statistics. But I have seen Big Kurt on the television a number of times this season. He is a phenomenal student who was named to the MAC honor roll. Kurt is majoring in Sports Management. Well done Kurt.
Jalen Jackson just wrapped up his junior season. The former Millionaire Tight End was the man for the Lock Haven Bald Eagles. He lead the squad with 38 catches and 568 yards. Jalen also scored 5 touchdowns. I’m sure he will get some love with the post-season awards. Jackson earned a spot on the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Division II All-America Second Team last season. Jalen broke through as he was one of the premier tight ends in all of Division II football in 2018. The physical yet nimble Jackson hauled in 44 catches and 537 yards last season. Jackson became the first LHU football player to ever earn a spot on the AFCA All-America Team. Bravo Jalen.
Props to these three Millionaires who are doing great things at their respective institutions. It is always great to see fine young lads excel at a high level. Congrats and the best of luck to our former All Staters. Continue to make us proud boys. Happy Thanksgiving. Cheers.
