I used to work at a little swim club in Metairie.  The manager of the club was also a coach at St. Martin's.  He was originally from the Philadelphia area, and I don't ever remember asking how he ended up in South Louisiana.  But he had a great past - he was in the Navy and drove the VIPs from place to place.  He was a track and football star at Tennessee.  And he was drafted by the Miami Dolphins.  I don't think he ever played a down, but he said playing at Tennessee was incredible. 

Jabari Greer was also a track and football star at Tennesse.  And now he's a Saint.  Welcome, sir.  I hope you find New Orleans an accomodating place to ply your trade and that you make a difference for our football team.  You really can't do worse than the gentleman who is currently employed in your position.
