4-Star Athlete Trey Lowe Commits to Washington

Trey Lowe, a 4-star athlete from Jesuit High School in Portland, Oregon, committed to Washington on Wednesday.

Lowe announced his pledge to the Huskies on Twitter:

Lowe, who stands 5’10” and weighs 180 pounds, is considered the 259th-ranked player in the Class of 2018, per Scout.com, and the No. 14 athlete. Scout’s West Recruiting Team called him an “explosive corner/receiver prospect who could end up on either side of the ball.”

Just how explosive is Lowe? In a Sept. 2016 rivalry game between Jesuit and Portland Central Catholic, Lowe rushed for 337 yards and six touchdowns.

He has incredible agility and lateral quickness, bouncing in and out of cuts while rarely losing speed. Lowe often turns short runs into long touchdowns by bouncing off tackles or juking past defenders.

He seems likely to be a rushing and receiving threat at the next level and will be most effective used in a role similar to the one Curtis Samuel provided for Ohio State in 2016, though of course, Lowe has a long way to go before he can live up to those expectations.

But his explosiveness is obvious. If he bulks up and adds some strength, he could be a force at the next level. 

Washington head coach Chris Petersen is pushing all the right buttons with his program coming off a Pac-12 title last season. 

The Huskies finished a respectable fourth, behind USC, Oregon and UCLA, in the 2017 Pac-12 recruiting rankings and 23 overall, per Scout.com. Only USC landed more 4-star prospects than Washington. 

Lowe could turn into the replacement Washington’s offense needs after speed-demon John Ross declared for the NFL draft after his breakout season. Both players lack the kind of elite size that jumps off the page, but their explosiveness makes them homerun threats on every play.

Kakadu: the Crocodile Dundee tour of Australia’s wetland wonderland

Thirty years after Paul Hogan’s smash-hit film put the Top End on the tourist trail, Nikki Marshall takes in some of its locations – and has a much-too-close encounter with a croc called Chopper

“You feel it from the heart. It’s something words can’t explain.”

So says Paul Arnold, a Darwin-based landscape photographer dressed like a cross between Steve Irwin and Crocodile Dundee (khaki shorts and shirt, battered bush hat, huge gold nugget on a kangaroo-skin strap around his neck). He’s talking about Kakadu, Australia’s largest national park – a world heritage-listed wilderness that’s home to wetlands, waterfalls, wildlife and the world’s longest continuous surviving culture.

Donald Trump’s Tax Accountant May Not Know Who Leaked That Tax Return But Points Out It WAS A ‘Client Copy’…

It would be one way to get ahead of a scandal…

Rachel Maddow‘s big reveal of Donald Trump‘s tax returns was a total bust — not only were they incomplete, they were from all the way back in 2005!

Frankly, they were kind of boring.

But what if that was intentional..??

We aren’t going full tin foil hat here, but what we do know is that the select 2 pages from Drumpf’s 2005 1040 were anonymously — and unexpectedly — delivered to David Cay Johnston.

Why would someone give those sensitive documents, which contain nothing more scandalous than the fact so many people were willing to provide the then-reality star with income, to a Pulitzer-winning tax analyst? They must have known he’d find nothing.

So… who benefits?

In this case, only one person: Trump himself.

He’s ALSO the only person who is supposed to have had control of the tax document.

Trump’s former tax accountant Jack Mitnick explained on Inside Edition Wednesday that the tax return shown by Maddow on her MSNBC show was clearly marked “client copy,” which means it would have been delivered at the time directly to Trump, not to the IRS.

The accounting firm he used would not have had a version of the “client copy” either; he explained:

“The taxpayer has control of his copy. We don’t control it.”

Of course, Mitnick also said he had no idea who leaked the documents and did not want to speculate. But others did, including Richard Painter, chief ethics counsel under President George W. Bush. He tweeted:

This reveal certainly makes POTUS look better than he’s ever looked, from an ethics standpoint.

Many Americans have assumed, based on him being the first president in history NOT to release his taxes, and of course the fact it was proven he lied about why he wasn’t releasing them, that he had something to hide.

Now it looks like he doesn’t, even though all anyone saw was two pages from a 12-year-old 1040.

Just sayin’…
