PBA legend makes his Genesis® TV debut during Super Bowl event
PBA Hall of Famer Parker Bohn III made his Genesis® G-Force™ TV debut during Super Bowl weekend, and what a debut it was. Teaming with actor Quinton Aaron of "The Blind Side" fame, the duo easily blew through the stepladder finals of the first annual Main Event PBA Super Clash, beating Jason Belmonte and Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson for the trophy, 204-118. Parker himself did much of the damage, striking on 15 of his first 17 balls, but Quinton proved to be no slouch, converting many key spares of which his celebrity contemporaries couldn't match.
Another notable highlight of the show was our own EJ Tackett being announced as the 2016 PBA Player of the Year, with the Rookie of the Year honor going to Francois Lavoie, fresh of off his K-Motion™ assisted win in the PBA Shark Championship. Other noted K-Motion™ users, Tom Smallwood and Rhino Page, won the Steve Nagy Sportsmanship Award and Tony Reyes Community Service Award, respectively. Concluding the event was a special 4 frame doubles event featuring Tackett and Belmonte being paired with Teen Masters participants.
