A traditional Japanese Taiko drummer, a Japanese guitarist and a “Koto” – Japanese harpist – will set the mood for the festival’s musical interludes. A silent auction also offers sought-after freebies such as artwork, vacation packages and more.

PA

For quarterback Jake Heaps, Kansas was just one of three schools he played for in five years.

After two seasons with Brigham Young, Heaps transferred to KU in 2013 during coach Charlie Weis’ final full season at Lawrence. The Jayhawks finished 3-9 and 1-8 in the Big 12, and Heaps appeared in 11 games, throwing eight touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

Heaps was traded to the Miami Hurricanes where he played sparingly in 2014. Heaps signed with the Jets as an undrafted free agent in 2015 but was released before the start of the season. In 2016 he joined the Seahawks and was part of the practice squad for a short time.

During that time in Seattle, Heaps developed a bond with quarterback Russell Wilson.

After the Seahawks let him go, Heaps worked on radio at KIRO (710 AM) in Seattle, but he’s back in football – as Wilson’s personal trainer. Wilson was traded to the Broncos earlier this year, and he asked Heaps to join him in Denver.

“I’m really, really excited to pursue this next part of my life and my career. I’m excited, obviously, to continue living my passions,” Heaps said on KIRO. “One was radio, but the another was also a coach. I’m really excited to see where this will take us.

Heaps told USA Today how he and Wilson bonded during their time with the Seahawks.

“He saw how hard I worked. I tried to beat him at the facility every day and we developed a bond through that,” Heaps told Parker Gabriel. “I got a random phone call from (Wilson) asking to get on a plane and come train him at UCLA and I said sure. We’ve been together ever since. It was really cool to have this friendship and to have this trust that he has in me and to have honest conversations and to evaluate his game and to do whatever I can to help him be better . Whether it’s improving the things he’s been struggling with or just maintaining what he’s been doing.

Wilson’s move to Denver means learning a new playbook with the Broncos and first-year coach Nathaniel Hackett. That’s why he asked Heaps to join him in Denver.

Heaps hopes he can ease the transition on Wilson.

“There are a lot of mental aspects of what you need to work on and make sure (Wilson) is sharp on new pieces and new aspects of the playbook, testing him and questioning him and all those things,” Heaps said. “There’s a certain familiarity there, but it was really cool to see everyone working together to fit in and make everyone feel comfortable, from the coaching staff to Russell to the guys. It was really great and, honestly, I’m amazed at where they are at this point in the offseason with the facility and where everyone is at.

From World Series coverage to the World Cup, Pete has done a bit of everything since joining The Star in 1997.
