Gil Thorp, 5/8/15
One thing I genuinely love about Gil Thorp is that sometimes the wacky teen characters they introduce for a plot in one sport vanish entirely when the season’s over, and sometimes they have starring roles in other sports, and sometimes they just show up in the background, and you’re never sure how it’s going to go! Anyway, it turns out that easygoing football phenom True Standish, who led Milford to its first title in decades, is also playing baseball for some reason, and will be romancing prickly, sassy “Boo” Radley. Will he finally suffer the career-ending injury we’ve all known is coming, by flirting so awkwardly that he ruptures something?
