SB Nation's Bill C. was on hand for the announcement of arguably the nation's best player in the 2012 college football recruiting class, Springfield, Missouri's Dorial Green-Beckham, and filed an extensive report over at SB Nation. While anyone even remotely interested in college football recruiting watched the "DGB" commitment on ESPNU yesterday, Bill. C's piece explores what you didn't see on-camera:
9:10 AM -- A city councilman is introduced to read a resolution recognizing DGB and his exploits. The paraphrased version: "Resolved that [DGB is amazing at football], and resolved that [everybody really likes him], the City of Springfield wishes to recognize [how awesome this is for Springfield]." Meanwhile, Dorial looks incredibly nervous, almost nauseous. When the councilman is finished reading, he presents a plaque; DGB jerks out of his seat, and in perhaps the most endearing moment of the day, his mother covertly fixes his kinked suit jacket while he shakes the councilman's hand.
