Smooth Sailing! Navy plucks QB from seats, helps top Fordham:
I have often said; there is so much talent sitting on the bench because they have never had a chance to showcase their skills.
Yesterday Malcolm Perry got his shot and came away smelling like a $1,000.00 bouquet of roses.
He marched into the stadium wearing his Navy dress whites with the rest of his swabbie comrades to watch the game and walked out a hero.
During the game the quarterback Tango Smith got blasted and was unable to finish the game.
Perry, who was a questionable player at one time, was literally plucked from the stands at halftime; came in the game and pulled off a 52-16 victory over Fordham.
This should serve as an example to other coaches and people in positions of hiring, not to tell a book by it’s cover and to give everyone (with-in reason) a fair chance to demonstrate their skills.
There are some real diamonds in the rough out there that just need a chance and a little polishing.
Everyone deserves a chance. There just may be some super-stars hidden away in your warehouse. You never will know unless they are given a chance to win the game.
