Kudos to KeeSean Johnson the former Paly star and Tinsley VTP student for being drafted by the NFL Cardinals

A few years prior, Davante Adams starred for Palo Alto High, Fresno State and then and now plays for the Green Bay Packers.

So there are two NFL players who attended PAUSD on Tinsley Voluntary Transfer Programs — with recent talk about consolidating for cash purposes the Tinsley students, why don’t we do the opposite in terms of blue chip athletes in major sports (football and basketball) and distribute them evenly between Gunn and Paly?

Also, kudos for Sacred Heart grad and Washington Husky Ben Burr-Kiven for being drafted by Seattle Seahawks.

I have not heard yet whether Stanford center Jesse Burkett I met recently at Ike’s Sandwiches in Palo Alto will sign with the NFL undrafted.

Fresno State pr and fundraising departments shot KeeSean visiting his alma mater, including posing him near Kerr’s portrait of Davante Adams, who mentored KeeSean. I have to say I didn’t follow KeeSean but am curious to talk to Kevin Mullen’s mother about him.
