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.
Boring, Obligatory Vitals
Hometown–Union, KY (Boone Co.)
Unfair comparison to NFL-er: Fellow Boone County native Shaun Alexander. Or Chris Henry, Chad Johnson, and Randy Moss because, according to Wikipedia, they all live in Union.
Most interesting fact from his media guide bio: Oh m’ Gawd! He’s Shaun Alexander’s cousin! Holy crap! His dad’s name is Miles Davis! Interesting fact overload!
Something we made up about him: What else is there!
Items of legitimate interest: First team All-State his senior year at BCHS…Scout Team Player of the Week leading up to the UL game in ’06…All-SEC Academic Honor Roll.
Outlook for 2008, based on light research by our minions: Will be contending for the center job, though he played guard in high school. Is adept at changing blocking schemes at the line of scrimmage.
