Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

Former Florida and Jaguars great Fred Taylor has a son, Kelvin, who like dad plays running back and is committed to play for the Gators. Kelvin's Glades Day squad made the trip up to Yulee for a battle of Florida high school heavyweights, and the ESPN broadcast focused mostly on Fred Taylor, who will be inducted into the Jaguars ring of honor this afternoon.

That's wonderful, except ESPN repeatedly showed some random guy and identified him as Fred Taylor. Repeatedly. (About 10 minutes later they realized their mistake and found the real Fred Taylor.) The ethics of broadcasting high school football on national cable notwithstanding, it's the least we can do to expect ESPN to identify the star player's dad correctly, right?
