They bought 32 hats just in case?

League or agents provide all 32 just in case.

A few years back, we used to do something called “adopt a Jer” where we pick our favorite rookie to root for.

I don’t want to jinx this kid (my previous picks include guys like Jace Amaro and the midget WR who played with Sam at USC), but I’m going to tempt fate here once again.

Rucker’s grew up 5 minutes from where I did…. He’s my guy!

I hope he (the Dad) has an account here. That would be awesome.

I would of course keep it confidential should be wish to send me a personal message letting me know.

(Oh no, now 900 of you are going to claim to be the Dad, here we go).  :)

Well I'm the Dad of a regular poster here who provides inside.  

Coincidence?

Ruckert is going to be a very good player, and he seems like a great guy from a great local family of Jet fans.  

But, putting my jerk hat on, one can argue that the pick there that was going to win the Jets the most games in 2022 was Channing Tindal.   The Jets already signed two decent TEs.  They really needed a LB like Channing Tindal.

But that is the last I am going to say about this.

I actually congratulated this dude publicly on my Facebook page.

Not everybody is going to make it to a pro football team. Also not everybody can say they made it to the practice squad of any kind of pro team.

Not all of us can be this lucky but this is the kind of thing I preach to my children to persevere and work harder than everybody else. Life is about the journey not the destination.

Some people join the army, some people go to college, some people start businesses, some people play in rock bands. Determination, honesty, and hard work all affect every other area of your life, for the rest of your life plain and simple.

Congrats to Ruckert and especially his old man who must feel like he's in Heaven on Earth.
