Cappy's Corner: Genuine Jamantye

-A A +A
By Mike Capshaw, Staff Writer

From the moment I heard about this job, I've been hearing about Chiefland’s Jamantye Thompson. 

To check out the paper, I went where anybody else would look first, chieflandcitizen.com.

"Jumpin' Jamantye" was the first headline to catch my eye. Then another on Thompson, and another, and another. Perusing printed archives after getting the gig, and the senior tailback’s pictures were plastered across the pages.

Hence, I figured this Jamantye to be as cocky as others with extra exposure.

No sir.

I was proven wrong my first day on the job Dec. 3, with the Indians hosting Dixie County in hoops."How's it going?" he said, not smiling but with a look-you-in-the-eye nod.

We chatted briefly, with him clearly not knowing I was the new sports guy. I'm sure he wasn't lobbying for any more attention in the paper. He just saw a stranger and said something to make them feel welcome.

Of course, I knew who he was from the picture when he was crowned Chiefland's homecoming king where I could see his face.
