During the Spring Game, you could not always tell the players without a program. Number 18 on your roster was Jack Kennedy (no, not that Jack Kennedy). Kennedy is apparently a 6 foot, 170 lb. freshman walk-on from Walled Lake Central H.S.. Kennedy is not listed on the spring roster on the team's website nor was a bio included in the Spring Football Media Guide. His name, however, was on the Roster handed out the day of the Spring Game and he took a fair number of reps during the scrimmage. Although he will never see game action in 2009, it was a nice chance for Kennedy to have a moment in the sun (literally and figuratively). Kennedy fared well while guiding the offense but that may speak as much to the lack of talent on defense as it does to the skill Kennedy exhibited. Nevertheless, Kennedy appeared poised and displayed a sense of confidence that seemed almost...well, Presidential. (sorry, I couldn't help myself). Go Blue!
