Today is a potentially career-defining moment for 49ers rookie LB, Chris Borland. Patrick Willis’ toe injury has caused the veteran to be placed on IR, leaving Borland the starter at MLB for the remainder of the season. Willis was injured right before halftime of the 49ers-Rams game on October 13. Since then, in some 3.5 games of work, Borland has registered 45 tackles, 1 sack, 2 PD, 1 FR, and 5 TFL. Like so many thousands upon thousands of other white American teenagers, Borland was an amazing high school athlete in the state of Ohio. In addition to being a tackling-machine at LB, he was also one of the best running backs in the state and his team (Archbishop Alter High School) won their only two state football titles during Borland’s junior and senior seasons. He was also the state champion in shot-put and discus. The most surprising aspect of his biography is that he actually wasn’t a collegiate “walk-on,” unlike so many current and former NCAA/NFL players who are white. Something tells me this guy will be terrorizing Negroes for a long time.
