Like become Miss America
Win the MVP award in the Pro Bowl.
Yup it sure was a good weekend for Virginia students, athletes and universities!
First, Caressa Cameron from VCU won the Miss America pageant.
And to think that she thought her only talent was singing...
Caressa worked hard to perfect her chances in the pageant and successfully navigated her way through grueling questions like the one which stumbled Miss California Carrie Prejean last year.
And I did read somewhere that she is a 'Goofy Foot' which means that most pageant contestants lead with their right foot but she leads with her left. Now, this is not goofy at all! After all any good sports coach will tell you that if you are a righty, you lead with your left.
I think all the other contestants are 'goofy'.
She does have good advice for all the young kids out there and surprisingly enough, it is not to go to school, study, work hard, or even do well...
"We need to get our kids back outside, playing with sticks in the street like I did when I was little,"
Gee, I hope she was talking about hockey...
The other big winners this past weekend came from the the pro bowl. The ACC takes the trophy for most players in the pro bowl this year. All in all there were 23 ACC players in the pro bowl.
3 of them came from Virginia.
D’Brickashaw Ferguson, Heath Miller, and Matt Schaub.
Matt Schaub had a 98 passer rating this year with 4770 yards passing and 29 TD's.
And he won the MVP award in the pro bowl.
So, does Caressa have any advice for Matt?
Well, as any good communications major should, she does appear to be working on her delivery, release point, and of course she is leading with her left !!!
