Federal Way coach Jerome Collins’ suits are often the talk of the state tournaments. The man knows how to dress. This morning, he’s sporting a loose-fitting lavender-and-white checkered suit, a lavender vest, a purple tie and lavender pants.
I asked students from Federal Way and Franklin what they thought about Wednesday’s selection.
Here’s what some had to say:
Franklin junior Nick Caldwell: "It’s nice. It’s colorful. It brings out the color in his skin. It’s flashy for a high school game, yeah, but everybody’s themselves."
Federal Way senior David Park: "He’s fresh. Fresh every time. He looks a bit like a Froot Loops box or Willy Wonka, but I like it."
Franklin junior Samrawit Bekele: "I think it’s ugly. It’s not very manly. He should wear something more manly."
Federal Way senior Ufa Tauile: "He’s fitted. It looks fresh. I don’t know what else to say except that it looks good on him."
Franklin sophomore Sami Abera: "I think he shouldn’t have worn the suit. He could’ve bought a better suit. It ain’t Easter yet."
