Usually boasting of high school football players is a job done by college boosters or devoted fans but when movie stars get involved in the hype, you know the kid must be special.
This weekend up-and-coming movie star Chris Pratt, who like any actor or athlete started from the bottom before becoming the international movie star he is today with starring roles in Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World, gave a shoutout to who thinks will be the next big thing in the game of football.
While the actor may just be giving QB prospect Jacob Eason a little love because they come from the same hometown, it's still pretty awesome that the 18-year old is getting recognized by one of the promising younf movie stars on the planet.
"He graduated from my high school a few years ago and grew up here," Eason told DawgNation this weekend.
The two hail from the same North Washington high school, Lake Stevens High, that made Pratt a Seahawk fan for life and apparently is producing big time stars every couple of years.
Ask any Bulldog (5-2, 3-2 in SEC) and they'll agree with the actor, Eason is damn good.
