Five years ago, Mike Shula took a chance on a skinny, lightly recruited quarterback from Hoover named John Parker Wilson.
Whether he knew then that Wilson would end up in the Senior Bowl at the end of his college career, one thing is fairly certain ? Shula never would have expected to be coaching him this week.
But two years after being dismissed as Alabama’s coach, Shula is now the quarterbacks coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, who are leading the South team in this year’s game. And who should he find among his signal-callers for the week but Wilson.
