The Jay Graves Report

Ben Davis’ Reese Taylor has already won the Mr. Football Award playa so give it up! “No Funny Business”

After watchin’ Gary Westside’s Dana Evans get robbed of the Miss Basketball Award this past spring. I’ve got to keep remindin’ boyz of who should win the Mr. Football Award this fall. It was as clear as Vodka who the best girls basketball player was last season but that didn’t stop a boy from pullin’ a rabbit out of their hat. They came up with some silly criteria like, “she didn’t win the state title so she couldn’t have been the best player in the state” foolishness.

However, ole girl showed up in the Indiana-Kentucky All-Star Game and put to rest who the best player in the state was. It wasn’t even close.

Well playas…there is no doubt that Reese Taylor is Mr. Football in the state of Indiana in 2017. Now let’s be clear bruh. Football is a totally different animal than basketball. There is no such thing as the best football player because the positions on the field are so vastly unique to one another that it’s impossible to say one player can do everything on the field.

Reese Taylor can’t play defensive end or linebacker better than the best at those positions. He can’t play tight end or cover like the best defensive backs out there. You get my point. The Mr. Football award typically goes to the most outstandin’ offensive player in the state. Just like the Heisman Trophy goes to the most outstandin’ offensive player and then every now and then a defensive player that plays both sides of the ball like Charles Woodson wins the joint.

Now that we’ve gotten that foolishness out of the way. Let’s talk turkey or better yet, let me put it where the goats can get it. While you’re readin’ this joint tell the “powers that be” to just ship the trophy to Ben Davis quarterback Reese Taylor and save everybody the time of dealin’ with the formality of it all.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! The dun’s puttin’ up video game-type numbers bruh. It’s not even real what he’s been doin’ this year. Through 12 games he’s put up 2,683 yards and 35 touchdowns in the air, completin’ darn near 73 percent of his passes!! Wheredeydodatat? Then he’s rushed for another 604 yards and 10 touchdowns on the ground!! That’s NUTS!!!

Nobody puts up those types of numbers in real life!!! Nobody!! And on some real talk the dun should have won it last year too. As a junior he went NUTS completin’ 66 percent of his passes for a mind blowin’ 2,730 yards and 24 touchdowns. Then turned around and put up another 961 yards on the ground for an additional 23 touchdowns!! CLOWNIN!!!!

So when they bubble wrap this year’s trophy tell them to put an apology in the box for not givin’ it to him last year. Yeah, I know that they typically give it to a senior but tell me who put up better numbers than he did in 2016? I’m waitin’ or like my wife likes to say, “I’m listenin’!”

Reese Taylor is the most dynamic and electrifyin’ player I’ve ever seen in high school football and boyz better not make up some foolishness for not handed this young thunder cat that award when the season is over. I’m just sayin’. We’ve seen funny business before. So I’m just lettin’ boyz know that I’m watchin’ and all the duns that read TheJayGravesReport are watchin’ too. Stop me when I start lyin’!

Playas Thesaurus: 

1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.

2) Ole boy: noun – the person that I’m currently talkin’ about.

3) Put it where the goats can get it: verb phrase – to make it as elementary as possible. To put it at ground level so everyone can understand it.

4) Wheredeydodatat?: Hood for “Who does that?”

The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”

The caption under the photo isn’t real but its real talk!
