Just saw his post game on the field interview. Very impressive kid. When asked why he stayed after losing the job last year despite the chance to be a grad transfer, he cited the "those who stay will be champions" sign and said "you can buy into that or not, I did."

As an aside, a couple of my close friends went to the game and had a nice chat with John's parents before the game. Really nice folks.

Very interesting, Shoes, about your pals' opportunity to chat with the O'Korns!! Not surprising to hear their appraisal of the parents at all: good people raise good people.

Mike, I'm going to see them later today and will get more detail but my friend's wife ran into Mrs. O'Korn again at halftime. Though they had just met for the first time before the game, Mrs. O'Korn hugged her and had tears in her eyes. I'm assuming that these were tears of joy that her son was finally getting the chance he had waited so long for. Not a reflection on Wilton because it sounds like John and Wilton have bonded a fair amount.

The only field interviewer tried to bait him with the question about if he thinks he made his case to be the starter, and O'Korn to his credit did not take the bait. Just said that he will be ready when his number is called.
