Novelist Joseph Conrad attributed both famous and often quoted comment, in his novel, Heart of Darkness to a character named Kurtz. The comment was The horror, The horror!

The line, readers believe, stands for one of two things. Either Kurtz is passing final judgment on his own life, actions, and generally on mankind and imperialism or he is commenting on his fate, which appears profoundly affected by the events he faced during his escapade to the Congo. We don’t believe this forum appropriate for resolving that dichotomy.

We believe many East Robertson fans expressed something similar upon learning their superstar QB, Cameron Swift, was lost to injury for the entire upcoming 2019 high school football season. Losing a player with the experience, skills, and ability at the QB position of a Cameron Swift is horrific, to say the least.

East Robertson believes it has a solution, if not the solution. Drake Alsup, who didn’t field a single snap from under center in 2018, has been tabbed to be Swift’s stand-in this year. Alsup is a 6-1, 190-pound, WR/SS combo player we have before featured. He bench presses 270 pounds, squats 420, power cleans 255, and was named both All-Region and All County following his junior season. We have linked his highlights, check it out for yourself.

Alsup has been timed at 4.66-seconds in the 40-yard dash, a time he registered at D-1 in Franklin where he regularly trains. If he can’t find one of Tennessee’s very best WR prospects Taylor Groves down the field, he can just tuck it and personally tote the pigskin. Groves, one of Tennessee’s very best WR prospects (2022) in his class, has already been offered by the University of Tennessee as well as other FBS, Power 5, schools and should amply demonstrate an omnipresent ability to escape coverage.

We shall see how this experiment works for East Robertson. KPGFootball predicts it will work out well, though won’t be the same as having Swift under center with Groves and Alsup both split out wide. This predicament is certainly a lemon. Let’s see if we can’t make a little lemonade.

Congratulations, to Drake Alsup of Cross Plains, Tennessee for being selected this week’s Stewart Williams Furniture Company’s Robertson County Player of the Week. Join us next week as we anoint a new recipient.
