Someone to Watch: CODY CRAIG -- What's the Rage all About?

He's leaving faster than I anticipated; yet I know he's ready. Cody Craig is a man who not only represented his own good name and his parents' exceptional character so very well, but his Alma Mater and his parish church with such great integrity.

Cody Craig, our esteemed Green Knight Quarterback will be leaving us on Tuesday to head to St. Louis to be a part of the "River City Rage," an Arena League football team just six hours to our south, based in St. Louis, Missouri. This comes just as Cody asks the beautiful Shelby Krueger for her hand in marriage -- with little Mello witnessing the events first hand!

Cody's statistics will be written in our athletic ledgers for years to come -- but he has also written his name in our hearts as one who not only triumphed on our field, but as one who was sustained at the Altar of our God week after week after week here at Old Saint Joe's and at his home parish back in the northern-Wisconsin metropolis that is Neilsville, Wisconsin.

While I barely have enough time to keep up with the NFL, I've become a fan of college football to root for Jim Purtill and our Green Knights as well as Jags and Boston College football -- yes, I realize they're Jesuit! Lately I've been keeping up to date on Arena League football to keep up with OSJ parishioner Chris Greisen -- so I'll need to be aware of Cody's progress with the Rage just as much.

As we watch and cheer for Cody's success, let's give thanks and praise to God for someone who served Him wise and faithfuly while here in our neck of the woods. Ad multos annos, Cody! Represent us well; we've got your back!

Father James Baraniak, O. Praem.
