Short and Insufficient Profile: Phillip Hibbard

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

Height–6’5”

Weight–305

40–4.9 (holy crap)

Year–Freshman

Position–Offensive Tackle

Hometown–Keavy, KY (South Laurel)

Unfair comparison to NFL-er: Keavy’s own…oh…wait…where the hell is Keavy, KY? Anyone from Keavy?

Most interesting fact from his media guide bio: Played basketball in high school, helping South Laurel to the second round of the Sweet 16.

Something we made up about him: Distant cousin of the fictional Dr. Hibbert, despite spelling and pronouncing their name’s differently.

Items of legitimate interest: Gigantic. Competed last year for playing time on the line before the coaches decided to redshirt him. Scout team player of the week once, as well.

Outlook for 2008, based on light research by our minions: Will again compete for playing time, but will likely be a reserve. His size, speed, and ability suggest that he will feature prominently on the line in the future.

***Update***: Also left the team. W. T. F?
