TCU linebacker and ESPN Preseason All-American Tank Carder sent WAKA this picture of his mantel this week, which has his 2011 Rose Bowl defensive MVP trophy displayed right in between two WAKA Kickball trophies from one of our Fort Worth area kickball leagues.
We tweeted it (Carder retweeted it too), shared it on Facebook and sent it to a few sports bloggers. Here are some bloggers that picked up the story:
SB Nation College Football – Tank Carder’s Rose Bowl MVP, Kickball Trophies Are Equally Important
SB Nation Mountain West Connection – Tank Carder’s Rose Bowl MVP trophy between two WAKA Kickball trophies
Carder’s team qualified for our 60-team Founders Cup kickball tournament in Las Vegas this October, where the winner will be crowned World Kickball Champion. But I’m told he’ll miss it, which makes sense — it’s football season and TCU plays at San Diego State that night. But the WAKA trophies do look great next to the Rose Bowl trophy on the mantel!
