OK, so, during the dragging, sweaty, uncomfortable months of summer, we flippantly mentioned that we would be profiling every player on the team. It will only be fun and worthwhile, we decided, if we were both informative AND funny. Well, it would be really fun if we were drunk the entire time, but that’s neither here nor there. Thus, for these ten weeks leading up to the UL game, we will have at least one profile a day. We hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed the idea of doing them, but not the actual task. Oh, and we see the egregious “that’s what she said” in the headline.
We’d also like to use this italicized space to apologize to the families of the players whose last names end in ‘A’ or ‘B’ because these early ones might suck a little.
Stop paying with change, Beisner. Or else.
Boring, Obligatory Vitals
Hometown–Jacksonville, FL (Fletcher)
Unfair comparison to NFL-er: This guy.
Most interesting fact from his media guide bio: Led Fletcher High School to their best season in school history.
Something we made up about him: Looks just like the dude that Beisner gets his “schwag” from.
Items of legitimate interest: Has 14 starts and 92 tackles at UK. He chose the Cats over Georgia Tech and Clemson, among others.
Outlook for 2008, based on light research by our minions: Though he’s spent most of his career at outside linebacker, he may get some time this season at defensive end. Otherwise, he and Maxwell will hold down the outside linebacker spot opposite Braxton Kelley.
Someone thought so highly of him that they decided to make like a ten minute video tribute. I didn’t watch the whole thing, so I hope there is no male organ shots in the second half.
