"Very Important Champ - poem" Reed family story
by- Patsy Jo Reed Sircy
Anyone can run the ball, they all can likely punt and pass,
But the ONE who keeps the RECORD straight's not even on the grass;
"Someday" will look, and clearly see, long after this game's fog,
The STATISTICIAN's NAME in WINNER's GOLD, the Keeper of the LOG!
TIME does not care of TOIL and TEARs unless the RECORD's kept,
In YELLOWJACKET's PURPLE ink, JASON said how far we swept;
The DRAFTED MEMBER of the TEAM, the COMPUTER was his KEY,
He did a job for the CHAMPION TEAM that none could do but he!
Some said nobody would know next year, what happened on the CREEK,
The MAGIC answer to the prob came to me last week;
The one and only JASON came to solve it, HE's the BEST,
So HISTORY hears how it was done, here in the JACKETs' NEST!
Oh, take me back to Hartsville days, to the JACKET with the SMARTs;
Let us recall his GOLDEN PEN, and the SMILE THAT STOLE OUR HEARTS!!
