High School Football Program Takes Recruiting Hoax Hook, Line and Sinker

December 22, 2009

Kodey Kroger posed as a ECU Pirate football recruiter, and several North Carolina high schools fell for it.Would you trust this man to be a college football recruiter in your high school halls?  The Croatan High School Cougars, of Carteret County, North Carolina, did, as well as others, and it’s kind of bit them, embarrassingly, in the ass. 

For reasons that have yet to be made entirely clear, Kodey Alexander Kroger spent several weeks posing as a “student-recruiter” for the East Carolina Pirates’ football program.  Having pulled the same stunt at other area schools earlier in the year, Kroger showed up at Croatan this month asking to talk to coaches about offering preferred walk-on status to two Cougar prospects.  When asked for credentials he happily presented realistic looking documentation with ECU logos, letterhead and even coach Skip Holtz’s “signature.”  Kroger also claimed to be a Freshman member of the Pirate football team, and said the Pirates had instituted the “student-recruiting” program to provide the coaching staff more time to focus on other, presumably higher priority, areas…

Winkers

Everyone that knows me is well aware that, while not at all interested in fashion, I’m often, inexplicably, on the cutting edge of it; setting trends, providing inspiration to family, friends, various social circles (including rival ones) and thus, by proxy, the world of fashion in general.  It’s all quite bizarre to me, really, but I take it in stride. Certainly not a point of pride, by any means, but who am I to argue with fate?

Having been burdened with this cruel gift of unintended power and influence, just how relieved do you think I was to come across this beacon of ethereal, dernier cri genius? My god, to what do I owe this blessing?  This blessing of not being, just for once, the trailblazer, the standard-bearer for a vogue that is all but certain to sweep the world by storm.

How, in roughly 200,000 years of human ingenuity, acumen and innovation — aproximately 250 years of which included the donning of something likable to pants –, someone never thought to put cute little animal eyes, jowls and, yes, even clapperboards between the folds of skin beneath one’s ass cheeks and upper thigh is simply beyond my comprehension. Who says evolution is diminishing right in front of us?  Not I.  Not anymore.  Eat your heart out New York, Paris, Milan; here are Winkers (Patent Pending)…

UPDATE: Now even more Winkers after the Jump!
