Corey Holmes, a former star running back for the Saskatchewan Roughriders, has run onto a new field — politics — and won.
Holmes, 32, was elected mayor of Metcalfe, Miss., on Tuesday. And, consistent with his reputation on the football field for making great plays under difficult conditions, Holmes's election was a hard-fought campaign.
Wow that was pretty friggin unnecessary. If you don't like the thread, don't post on it. There are many of us on here who DON'T think this is a useless thread. I read about this earlier and thought it was nice to know Corey is doing well for himself. He made a lot of friends in his short time here and they are interested in how he is doing. To some of us these guys are people as well as players and it's nice to see how they are doing after football.
