J.C. Sherrit is a pretty damn good football player

This Sherrit kid... he's got some potential.

Eastern Washington University junior linebacker J.C. Sherritt has been selected to the Walter Camp Football Foundation 2009 Football Championship Subdivision All-America team. The team was selected by the head coaches and sports information directors of FCS schools.

The 2006 graduate of Pullman (Wash.) High School finished the 2009 season as the leader in NCAA Football Championship Subdivision statistics with an average of 14.17 tackles per game. He helped lead Eastern to an 8-4 record and an appearance in the FCS Playoffs -- EWU's fourth berth in the last six seasons.

He had a total of 170 stops in 2009 to break the school record of 151 set by Greg Belzer in 2000. Besides his 170 tackles, Sherritt had 14 tackles for loss, four passes broken up, three forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries and an interception he returned for a touchdown.

I'd just like to take this time and point out that Greg Belzer is from my very own hometown of Chewelah, Wash. So you know Sherritt is good if he's breaking Belzer's record. We grow them big up there. And mean.

(And sometimes a bit unemployed, but thats how we roll in Chewelah)
