    That mesh vest in front of the fence makes it look like Pascoe is hitting the invisible man.

    First impression: Pascoe can’t follow orders and rules don’t apply to him.

    “Coach”? Seems like it would be “first-name” or “Coach last-name”.

    It’s time for Pascoe’s English teacher to assign an oral book report.

    So he’s only a sophomore? Big John must be one of those kids who went through first and second grade a couple of times. Had a kid like that in my class and he got his driver’s license in 8th grade.

    Seems he’s a junior – didn’t play last year.

    P2- Is Gi giving a shout out to the 619 on the coffee mug? P3- The Mighty Timken Trojans, Home of the Drill Bits.

    John Pascoe, a 19 year old junior transfer from Timken High, but didn’t play for the Trojans during his sophomore year, because he was serving a 6-month sentence for aggravated assault. Seems he beat up the JV coach during the two-a-day workouts

    Looks like a facemask and/or shot to the helmet in P1. Pascoe has the ’roid rage real bad.

    @DaleJQP

    Coaches all call each other “Coach.” I learned that from Friday Night Lights.

    I questioned that somewhere. Did he have to take Speech? Does he have a medical excuse he can use whenever he’s asked a question in class?

    P1- illegal blow to the head/head slap/block in the back, Pascoe is displaying the full repertoire that Timken Roller Bearing’s thug coach Frank Sutton (Sgt. Carter from Gomer Pyle to those under 45) teaches his squad.

    Pascoe bears eerie resemblance to Dethklok frontman Nathan Explosion….

    “Timken High”?

    I wonder if that name could have been derived from two people in Rubin and Whigham’s lives?

    Why is the player on the left in P1 wearing the fence?

    Gil is a bit anal. He always flies and Amtraks Coach. I’m fairly certain his grandfather even stage-coached.
