12 Year Old Student Reporter Tells Oregon Coach Mark Helfrich His School Only Cares About 3 Things: Jesus, Girls, and Marcus Mariota
ESPN - Oregon’s Marcus Mariota accounted for four touchdowns against Colorado on Saturday, maintaining the inside track on the Heisman Trophy and a playoff spot for the Ducks.
And while Mariota tops NFL draft boards from coast to coast — including our own Mel Kiper’s — the redshirt junior hasn’t officially announced where he will play next season.
So after the game, one industrious 12-year-old student reporter from O’Hara Catholic School in Eugene took it upon himself to get to the bottom of it. Head coach Mark Helfrich fielded the hard-ball question from sixth grader Charlie Papé.
Love Charlie Papé. Such a little boss. If Mark Helfrich and Marcus Mariota had any sense whatsoever they would call up Charlie Papé in his office at the O’Hara Catholic School newspaper and let him be the first to break the news on Mariota’s decision when he reaches it. That would be awesome. Jesus, girls, Marcus Mariota, that’s all this little baller cares about.
Oh and some 4th thing, but it didn’t seem that important.
