If the Bob Woodward of Total Frat Move, Roger J Dorn, is to be believed, this week Jimmy Greenwood went from quarterback of the SAE intramural football to on Charlie Strong’s depth chart at the University of Texas.
Help is on the way in the form of fraternity intramural standout Jimmy Greenwood. Greenwood, a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon at Texas, got the call up from the intramural flag football ranks to the Big 12, according to multiple sources, plus this low-rent blog. Rumor has it he lights up the score on the sideline, pledge-held dry erase board.
That’s pretty much everyone’s dream. Greenwood was a high school rock star (see his highlight reel here) before moving from under center to over kegs. According to TFM, it was the coaching staff that reached out to Greenwood.
Our sources have also indicated that Greenwood was sought by the Texas coaching staff–alarming for Texas fans, but just awesome for everyone else. Greenwood would obviously be tagged as an extreme emergency option, but hey, the guy is an option. And I dig it.
I dig it, too. Per SBNation, the story is true.
According to someone close to Greenwood, the report is semi-accurate. Greenwood joined the team this week, but they couldn’t confirm whether or not he was contacted by coaches or simply walked-on.
