Jordan Shipley aka White Lightning

Jordan Shipley
Burnet (TX) Burnet
Call him White Lightning. Shipley is deceptively fast and has amazing hands to boot.
We love the college game around here because of the ample and hilarious examples of the sports cliche.  Take UT's star wide-out Jordan Shipley, for example.  

In high school, Shipley, the all time Texas High School receiver, ran a 10.41 100 meter and a 4.37 40.  For comparison, on a home fast track, IN COLLEGE, Reggie Bush ran a 4.33.  Devin Hester ran a 4.45 at the NFL combine.

As fast as Reggie Bush, faster than Devin Hester, yet chooses to tell us he's "deceptively fast" and "has amazing hands". gushes about his "good route running", "excellent concentration" (WTF: New Cliche Alert!!),  and that he's a "tough blocker down the field".

Did we mention that he's a "coach's son"?   We are howling!!
