does the park record have nothing to write about John calls you with the latest update and you write about it. Dylan was a nice kid and a good player when he was here, but quitting the naval academy is not something I would be proud of. He finds he does not like it and quits. What about our other boys who signed up for military commitments do they have the choice to quit? No they were not playing football. Going to play from the naval academy to USU is not something I would be boasting about John. How about another article on Jared Tew a kid who finished his commitment

I know for a fact that Jared hated his first year at the Air Force ....who in their right mind would enjoy being a bottom of the barrel plebe his first year ...it's NOT for everyone & it is NO fun what so ever ..especially when U don't even get to sniff the field .. BUT ... Tew persevered and ended up having one hell of a career on the field ,,,,not to mention that the kid will now be a pilot and set for life when he retires in his 40's , if he chooses to ... another great PC story is Colton Nichter , who started at DT in the SEC for Vandy this past year as a redshirt Soph ....not to mention he carries over a 3.0 at Vandy , which is considered the Ivy League of the south .... not a bad piece of paper to have when U enter the real world job market ... the game of life is not easy , especially in today's crazy world .. kids these days need to understand that they are NOT ENTITLED to anything and simply quitting when the going gets tough is NOT an option ... figuring things out and dealing with the constant crapola thrown at U sure does help a lot later in life .. unfortunately some PC parents seem to foster the same mentality and pass it on to the kids ... please keep in mind that I'm making a general statement here , not necessarily addressing Mr. C ... best of luck to him at USU or wherever he ultimately ends up ...

just wondering if either of you two have played college football and/or gone to the naval academy? at least Dylan tried it and was man enough to step up and say military life was not for him. don't judge a 19 year old kid for his life choices. how do you know if he feels entitled? just because a kid goes to PCHS does not mean he has this mentality. Dylan is a good kid and a hard worker.

BTW, Another Local, have you ever heard the saying that only a-holes make generalizations?

um...wow i was actually making a tongue-in-cheek comment on that last sentence. by saying only a-holes make generalizations makes me an a-hole because i just made a generalization. sorry if i offended you, Another Local. just saying maybe people shouldn't be so hard on a kid for his life choices.
i try not to say anything online that i wouldn't say to someone's face, so maybe you should go have a talk with Dylan. if you played college ball, maybe you can share your experiences with him and support him instead of knocking him down.

No one is knocking Dylan he was a good kid. I think the point is it was not Park record news to be announcing my son quits the naval academy commitment to be a running back at Utah State. The point is USU is nothing compared to the Naval Academy, it is an honor to be in the Naval Academy how many young men were on that waiting list who wanted to play football and had tell commitment to stick it out and make something of themselves besides a guy who just wants to play football. As I said nobody would had know if JC had not made the big announcement so it became public news and people will comment on it.

Weeser - good comments in making the point that True Local's missing - JC felt he had to make an announcment and make it sound like this is an honor or something, rather than what it really is. DC didn't like it or cut it, whichever way you want to spin it, at Navy and quit. Quitting school isn't usually something one gets a promotional article written about you unless you're a superstar and/or there was something newsworthy about the transfer. A 4th stringer doesn't fit either bill.
