This Week in Milford

Tevin Claxton, Enabler

Well now he’s done it. By tolerating and encouraging Boyd Spiller’s YouTube-gotten powers of hypnosis, then leading the Mudlarks to victory, Tevin’s got the Milford student body convinced that Boyd’s some kind of magic man. Another Bobby Howry, minus the drugs but still with the placebo effect. Now some lunk thinks Boyd hypnotized him into getting a better grade on his algebra test. Next thing you know Kianna Bello will have Boyd hypnotize her into being able to juggle volleyball and gymnastics without neglecting her studies or passing out on a table. Nah, that one will require the drugs.

Gordon Achebe once again tries to be the voice of reason. He might not be the team captain, but here he’s Captain Obvious. Gordon is – or has been – the voice of Chance Macy this season, at least to the Milford Star. Chance has been willfully ignorant of his college prospects, pawning them off on his custodial grandparents and his custodial head coach. Even the Milford High office staff are getting tired of this schtick. Think Boyd can hypnotize him into caring about life after high school?


  1. Man, Chance is about to go blowtop mad all over whoever is doing the announcements. And I don’t blame it, what’s with the aggressive “AGAIN” from the speaker? Is that so difficult to make a whole 3 second announcement? Which is actually your job?

    “Chance Macy to the office please”

  5. […] that Tevin has said so much on multiple occasions (as has Gordon); Kianna wanted to believe the kid getting a B on his algebra test was proof of Boyd’s magic. So what remains? Will she call Spiller out […]

  6. […] how many kids placed their trust in hypno-jackhole there? I count three: the kid who needed a B on his algebra test, the lineman who kept missing his assignment on the jet sweep, and Kianna, who […]

  7. […] Tevin Claxton a choker more than once, one or more of his teammates (maybe that voice of reason Gordon Achebe) should’ve shoved him in a locker or otherwise nipped it in the bud. As soon as word of […]
