Behind every winning college football team, there is a ball boy, one part assistant, one part cheerleader, one part whatever the f**k needs to done. Mostly they go unnoticed… until now. The two teams competing in the first ever College Football Playoff game happen to have the most high-profile ball boys the game has ever known.
Last year, FSU’s Frankie Grizzle-Malgrat–better known as “Red Lightning”, became an internet sensation showing his intense commitment to the program during the last 2014 BCS championship game. This year, Oregon’s Kwame Mitchell – aka Chocolate Thunder, caught the media’s eye with his talent (and his hair), earning what may very well be the first ever sports management scholarship in CFB.
