    Great news! Thanks for the update. Still have wonderful memories of Earnest running all over those poor Tigers in the 2000 SECCCG...

    I'm glad for him. I hope he made some security money during his time in the NFL.

    Congrats Earnest! Always one of my favorite backs at UF. He always struck me as a blue-collar back that would do anything as long as we got the win! A well-deserved job for him indeed!

    I still wish he wasn't hurt for the UT game in 2001...all hypothetical but possibly another National title perhaps?

    Awesome. My first gig as a sports writer (previous life) was down there and Mariner was one of my schools. I knew within minutes of meeting him and seeing him play that he would be something special. His coach was a friggin nutcase, though. Funny thing is, it was hoops where I had the most fun. EG was the guy off the bench for strictly defensive purposes and of course Teddy was the man. Great team. Lost in state finals to Mainland and TT Toliver (who had a great game).

    Knew EG would succeed no matter what he did. Never figured Teddy for a psycho nutcase.

    Now he coaches his former rival, and the high school of Deion, Jevon (got to see him the year before on a trip down while covering Jefferson as a stringer for SPTimes).

    Just remembered. . . . Reche (then Donald) was a Fr. QB for Jefferson in that game.

    Good for Earnest. I didn't know he was getting into coaching. BTW - isn't NFM high Deion Sanders's school?
