Billy Mays on Trial

Does your offensive line collapse because the tight end is a liability? Well The Fizz has an answer for you, and it’s Kevin Haplea!

The Fizz would like to offer condolences to the Mays family, after we all lost one of the most legendary pitch men of all-time. Which is why we can only sell the latest SU recruit in Orange Glo fashion.

“Billy Mays here. Do you have slow, unimpressive tight ends who don’t catch passes? Does your offensive line collapse because the tight end is a liability in pass protection?

Well The Fizz has an answer for you, and it’s¬†Kevin Haplea from North Hunterdon High School in New Jersey!

A class of 2010 recruit, the high school senior is the key to all your problems across the middle.

Fast, flash and all pizazz, Haplea catches balls, blocks for his quarterback and earns four stars on the recruiting boards.

The secret is in the 40-yard dash time: with a 4.75 second sprint, Haplea brings the speed the other SU tight ends need.

He catches, hears audibles and protects all at the same time!

For the price of one scholarship, you get the 40-time AND the star from Annandale, New Jersey complete with work ethic and impressive credentials.

But call right now and we’ll throw in 6 feet-four inches, a 315 pound bench press and the 32-inch veritcal leap absolutely free!

But you gotta call now, because Miami, Penn State and West Virginia all want the beast from the armpit of the northeast.”
