ALABAMA OFFERS FULL FOOTBALL SCHOLARSHIP TO AN EIGHTH GRADER

The University of Alabama is attempting to maintain its dominance in college football by digging deeper than anyone in their recruiting efforts. Need proof? They recently offered a full scholarship to an eighth grader.

To be fair, this is no ordinary eighth grader.

Kiyaunta Goodwin of Louisville, Kentucky, is 6-foot-7 and weighs 370 pounds. He won’t graduate from high school until 2022, but Kiyaunta has already received scholarship offers from Georgia, Louisville, Kentucky, LSU, Syracuse, Cincinnati and Western Kentucky — among others.

He can supposedly leg press 1,000 pounds and bench press 315 pounds — again … as an eighth grader.

We’ll see how this goes — and exactly where he actually plays college ball. It’s just a matter of waiting four years until he finishes high school. (Larry Brown Sports)

The Bangles reunited with two of their old bass players at the Arroyo Seco Weekend festival in Pasadena, California on Sunday, but neither was their best known one, Michael Steele. Her predecessor, Annette Zalinskas, played the entire set except for one song, for which they were joined by an even earlier member, Amanda Pagano.

Commenting on the death of D.J. Fontana, the drummer in Elvis Presley’s early band, Max Weinbergsays, “As a five-year-old, D.J.’s drum roll in ‘Hound Dog’ was an explosion for me. That drum roll, that triple roll, was shocking… that’s what got me started playing the drums. D.J. Fontana was my hero.”
