I don’t see Jordan Williams?

Jordan could not make it this year.  I have not heard why.

Williams couldn't get here for some reason.  You cannot believe the work that D.J. and J.J. have done to put this together, then keep it together.  Another new add last night that should really help also.  Practice should be fun this morning.
