because i love them

zach-and-jake.jpg

My brothers. Well, 2 of them anyway. I’m writing this for 2 reasons.

1.) I am super-proud of the one on the right (We call him Jake, you can call him the one on the right). Well, I’m proud of all of my siblings, but the one on the right tore it up today. I’ll explain momentarily.

2.) The one on the left (We call him Zach, see instructions above) asked me to write about him. Again, I’ll explain momentarily.

So, Jake (isn’t he adorable?) plays for his high school football team. When I say he’s really good, I hope that you can look past the big-sister pride and truly believe it. He’s really good. As in, he was bumped from the freshman team last year to varsity this year, good. So every summer after try-outs and conditioning, each team member is “tested” on a number of things:

Timed 40 yard dash
Height and weight
Bench-press
1-mile run

Last year, Jake did the 40 yard dash in a 5.0 (that’s seconds, I can’t even think about run 40 yards in 5 seconds much less do it) he weighed 145 lbs and was about 5’8″, and did the 1 mile run in about 7 minutes. This year, or more specifically, today, Jake ran the 40 yard dash in 4.73 (again, seconds), weighed 179 lbs at 5’11” and did his mile run in about 6.5 minutes.

This might not mean much until I tell you this:

NFL linebackers only have 1/100 of a second on my little brother and he’s 2/100 of a second faster than most NFL linemen. In fact, only 3 people on his entire team are faster than him.

I know, impressive.

So, on to Zach.

Zach’s single ladies. Available. Yours for the taking. If you are between the ages of 17 and 30, and well, local, hit me up and I’ll hook you up.

There, now he can’t say I didn’t try.
