That was awesome.

I'm a big fan of paper airplanes.

There is alot to both the design and the throw.

Congratiulations Joe.

Joe Ayoob Is A Good Person - 02-28-2012, 12:32 AM

And I am happy that he is getting some positive publicity. He came to Cal from CCSF as an all- everything superstar QB with a background much more immersive than his predecessor, Aaron Rogers. He did his best but sometimes things just do not work out, specially for a QB.

I met him around four years ago at tailgate party after a Cal game after he had graduated. What a nice guy and very supportive of Cal. I believe his father is a doctor of middle easter background from Marin county. I wish Joe Ayoob well in his life and career (I have no idea what he is doing now).

Ha Ayoob has been at this for a while. Previous World Record Attempt.

Ha, I love it. Joe Ayoob World Record Holder, Paper Airplane Pilot, and Science Geek. "It does involve a little bit of luck, but also the perfect throw with the right plane," said Paper Airplane Pilot and Former Cal Football Quarterback Joe Ayoob.

Does this reestablish Tedford as a QB guru. He now has several QBs that achieved world championship status.
