Are you ready for your head to blow up? Kirk Cousins’ cousin, Jake Cousins, was drafted by the Washington Nationals on Wednesday in the 20th round of the MLB Draft. Ah yes, the D.C. sports family tree is getting fun, y’perfect.
Jake Cousins is a right-handed pitcher from the University of Pennsylvania. He’ll be bringing that Ivy League talent and intellect to the same city in which his older cousin is the star quarterback for the Washington Redskins.
Kirk, for one, seems excited approximately it:
Jake Cousins went 7-2 with a 3.15 ERA in his senior season with the Quakers. He threw three total games, including one shutout. It was a huge step forward from a junior season in which he carried a 4.23 ERA with a 4-4 record.
The Nats now absorb six years to develop Jake Cousins into a huge leaguer. whether the Cousin Kirk ever signs that long-term deal with the Redskins, they might just see each other in D.C.
