Garden City’s run ends/First-ever Johnny Drama Award/Alex Melugin

Garden City Community College’s epic postseason run ended Thursday night with a loss to Connors State in the quarterfinals of the NJCAA Tournament.

The Broncbusters have put on a heck of a show, and because of my fondness for this team … I’m going to honor them with the first annual Sunflower Slate Johnny Drama Award.

I’ll give this out periodically, the only qualifications being a team that overachieves, comes back from the brink of nothingness or otherwise proves all the doubters wrong, kind of like the Busters did.

Here you go:

So there’s that. I know it’s nothing fancy, but hey, any little bit helps.

ALEX MELUGIN

Just thought I’d drop this in: former Friends QB Alex Melugin – the 2008 KCAC offensive player of the year — is the backup QB for the Wichita Wild, who open their season tonight at Omaha. I think it is a safe bet to say he’s the first pro football player to come out of Sunrise Christian Academy. If I’m wrong I’ll eat that one. Dude had a spectacunormous senior year for the Falcons and it was nice to see him on the Wild’s roster. Even though I’ve always been a big Matt Kelly fan. Go Grizzlies.
