    Cyclones add a safety

    Matt Swoyer from Southlake Carroll (Texas) will be joining the good guys next fall. Matt was a starting safety on the class 5A Division 1 State Champion Carroll Dragons. Not clear if this is a scholly or walk on deal, but this kid can play. He's got legit Big 12 speed and loves to hit. Best part - Mom and Dad are Clone to the Bone!! For those old enough to remember, I'd compare him to Dustin Avey. Kid has a nose for the ball and is a winner. Way to go Matt!

    Re: Cyclones add a safety

    Got to like speed. Seems we're getting some decent D players. Curious how well we've done on the O line?

    I like the height, while not extremely tall, it is a step up from what we usually have.

    Old enough to remember? I must be getting old, grew up with Dustin.... thanks for the reminder...

    If he is like Dustin, will be a fantastic player. I still remember seeing Dustin's shoulder pop out in a game and head to the locker room only to come back out and play with the arm hanging the entire time. Dustin ran 400 hurdles faster than kids run the open 400. He was sweet.

    Re: Cyclones add a safety

    I LOVE the fact that were recruiting football players that are also wrestlers, I did both in High School and they cross over so much and make you such a better football player than playing basketball can, especially in my case as an lineman..Kid looks like a stud, glad to have him on board

    Google also auto-completes the phrase "woman who had face" with "ripped off by a chimp".

    (Sklar Brothers joke. Highly recommend their standup, btw)

    For lineman, wrestling will help with run blocking and leverage. Basketball helps with moving feet and keeping your hands and hips in the right spots for pass blocking. For pass blocking you don't need to clear them out as much as stay in the way and keep them off course.
