Owen Schmitt, entertainer

It’s not that I can’t see this guy doing something on the side besides playing football…

… but I’m not sure I envisioned this.

… Schmitt is a head-banger no more.

Not that he’s gone soft since joining the Seattle Seahawks after a successful stint as fullback for the West Virginia Mountaineers.

No, ol’ No. 35 has gone country.

Schmitt will be making an appearance with the Davisson Brothers Band at the Lost Parrot Beach Bar & Grill on Neville Street in Beckley Thursday night. Schmitt is a part-time guitarist and vocalist with the Clarksburg-based group.

The Davisson Brothers Band is described on its Web site as having “a unique style infusing a remarkable blend of country, southern rock and bluegrass to create a distinctive sound.”

So how does Schmitt and his image fit in? And just how does one go from the gridiron to the stage?

Maybe he hits himself over the head with his guitar.

For your listening pleasure, here’s “Big City Hillbilly”.  No blood, though.

    Do not give up your day job Owen. Not a bad band though.
