Who’s been keeping a secret?

Nick Patti, that’s who. Seems he’s responsible for getting George Kenneth "Trey" Griffey III (yes, that’s Ken Griffey Jr’s kid) a scholarship at Arizona (at least that’s my take). According to this article, interest from colleges started to heat up after his senior season at Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando, FL. where he set records for receptions and receiving yards in a game and a season. Of course, who was at the starting end of those records...our own Nick Patti. I’m sure he’s too humble to brag, but could he have at least tipped us off that he was throwing to a surefire Baseball Hall of Famer’s son? Think of some random possibilities (past, present, and future):

  • The offense, the defense, the cheerleaders, and the marching band from Dr. Phillips High School eating their pre-game meals at the Griffey’s.
  • Ken Griffey Jr. manning the BBQ during the JV games to raise money for the Dr. Phillips football booster club.
  • Nick talks Trey into coming to Boise State with him in a package deal, by telling him he’ll actually win games and play on national TV (after red shirting this year because he doesn’t want to waste a year of eligibility playing on the Mtn Network).
  • "The Kid", his wife, and their other two kids sitting in the parent’s section in Bronco Stadium between the Miller and the Burroughs families for a year.
  • "Patti to Griffey...and that’s another Bronco FIRST DOWN!!!!"
  • "The Kid", his wife, and their other two kids donating lots o’ greenbacks to build an addition to the luxury suites so the families of the players can sit in style before their second year.
  • Fill in your lame KTVB/Idaho Statesman Griffey pun here _______ .
  • "The Kid", his wife, and their other two kids donating enormous mounds of cash to expand Bronco Stadium to hold 100,000 screaming Bronco fans before their third year.
  • Spring training in Orlando anyone?
  • Moore to Griffey. Kirby gets the monkey off his back by finally completing a pass. Of course the pass looks the same as his last one but Griffey channels his inner Jr. and goes up and over the defense like his Dad going over the wall to rob a hitter of a home run.
  • "The Kid", his wife, and their other two kids break the bank to buy a sound system for Bronco Stadium so we can actually understand what’s being said before their fourth year. OK, that’s just pure fantasy, but everything else is a real possibility.
