Student-coaches?

With the first batch of college football games just around the corner, we want to bring star quarterback McKenzie Milton to your attention. Milton used to start for the University of Central Florida (UCF) before he was seriously injured at the end of the 2018 season, but according to this recent Associated Press report dated 5 August 2019, Milton might be joining the coaching staff at UCF.

(This particular tome, which is titled Tokyo Storefronts, is available here and on Amazon.) In addition to Mr Urbanowicz’s lovely watercolors of storefronts, what most called my attention to Teoh Yi Chie’s page-by-page review is that it is in the form of a YouTube video!
