Gunn turned a decent local running back into King of the Road by yielding four touchdowns and 260 yards to Junior Jeaden Underwood Friday night in Sunnyvale. Like in the song he is Short, but not too big around.
Gun is 0 and 5 and is believed to be the only team in the CCS to not have yet scored a touchdown field goal extra point or safety.
i’ve never been to Kings Academy it’s somewhere in Sunnyvale not far from the 49ers I guess. I think this is where Jeremy Lin attended fifth grade and I used to say that not only would Gunn have won the championship but for Jeremys controversial enrollment at Paly but conceivably the kings academy might have won CCS with Jeremy Lin in 2006.
I wrote to the school board wondering how of our two schools one was 41 points better a few weeks ago.
Why did Jason Miller leave?
Does Paly benefit too much from certain enrollment patterns like children of Stanford coaches’, kids who live in Ventura which is closer to God or the Tinsley transfers?
Last season I met five or six of the families whose boys played gunn football I got invited to the games because plastic Alto here was covering their excellent season where is the Weekly was not .
I think I read that the current Gunn coach played college football in Montana with one of our firefighters and perhaps assistant chief. There is a metaphor there somewhere but I’ll let it lie fallow.
“King of the Road” by Jason’s relative Roger Miller song if anyone still knows it is ironic because he is by no means King of the Road.
I hope Gunn players coaches and families fine meeting in such a humbling season .
And1: I went to the Gunn reunion of class of ‘70 which was Akira Tana‘s group he quarterbacked them to a championship actually in 1969. More significant to me today there were 15 pretty good musicians who played that day. I met Alex Degrassi.
