It’s a Saturday morning in December. Which according to PFT bylaws means that it’s time to provide an update regarding a former NFL quarterback whose lingering relevance to the game comes in other ways.
It required a coin flip between an offer recently made by the Milan Seamen and the exploits of Oak Grove High School.
In the ensuing battle of five-letter quarterbacks, the older guy won.
According to the Hattiesburg American, Brett Favre won his second football championship via a retirement gig as offensive coordinator at the high school where he worked out during his various retirements. The Oak Grove Warriors beat Tupelo, 14-7, for the school’s first Mississippi high school state championship.
“I can’t say it’s like a Super Bowl, but it’s pretty close,” Favre said, via the Associated Press. “It really is. It’s a different type of feeling, but I couldn’t be more proud of these guys. It’s been a lot of fun.”
The decisive points came not from Favre’s playbook, but from a fake field goal.
“That was all the special teams’ coach,” Favre said. “I don’t call trick plays.”
Tune in next Saturday for the latest news on the former five-letter quarterback with the demeanor of Buddy the Elf.
