Appy State: The cupcake that fought back…
A John Deere mulching mower did what Lloyd Carr’s Michigan Wolverines could not.
Appalachian State quarterback Armanti Edwards has put the start of his season in jeopardy after a lawnmower accident put him in the hospital.
The three-time Division I-AA All-American hurt his right foot mowing the lawn at his off-campus house, and is expected to miss 2-4 weeks.
“First of all, we’re all fortunate and grateful that Armanti wasn’t more seriously injured in this accident,” Appalachian State coach Jerry Moore said.
Okay, as a kid who cut a lot of grass growing up, I am well versed on the dangers of lawnmowers.I’ve had many a close calls with malfunctioning blades, rocks getting spit up and shot into me, and those ever-pesky, often malfunctioning grass-baggers.
But if I’m Jerry Moore, I’m giving a tongue-lashing to Edwards’ roommates. Three time All-Americans don’t mow the grass! Walter Payton Awards winners don’t worry about trimming around the hedges, or getting a good mulch. Especially if they walked into the Big House and pulled one of the biggest upsets in college football history.
Kick up those feet, Armanti. Let someone else mow that grass…
Let’s home Armanti doesn’t miss any playing time, and that some redshirt freshman volunteers to cut the lawn from now on.
