The Baby Face Assassin
When Jermaine Kearse was shown the photo of him as a youth football player, the first thing the Seahawks’ big-play wide receiver did was smile.
Then he shook his head. Then he offered, “Man, that was long time ago. And I had a baby face.”
That was Kearse in the fourth, or maybe fifth, grade while playing for the Lakewood Lumberjacks: The Baby Face Assassin.
And, he wasn’t a receiver in those days. “I started out as a quarterback,” he said. “Those were fun times. I scored like 20 touchdowns that season, rushing. I only had one pass attempt.”
Now, in his second season with the Seahawks, Kearse is on the other end of this quarterback-receiver thing.
