The suit is the talk of the tourney

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."
