    Re: Preferred Walk-On Transfer

    So he'll redshirt and have 2 years of eligibility?

    Should be a good gunner if nothing else.

    2012 RCTC Football Roster

    RCTC is a pretty good program... only losing nine games in the last six years.
    its a good program for non scholarship JUCO. My brothers in law played for another team in that same conference and let's just say a school like IWCC would easily hang 75 points on RCTC. None of the schools from that Minnesota conference play scholarship schools on a regular basis and when they do it is a very long ugly day for them.

    Not saying he can't be a good player as RCTC has turned out some decent players. But I always hate how RCTC touts their record when they don't even play "big boy" JUCO ball.

    If I remember right they played in that JUCO bowl in Cedar Falls not too long ago and got by 60 or 70 by a scholarship team.

    Regardless, welcome aboard and good luck.

    Had 20 interceptions his freshman season. At least we know he can catch.

    20 INTERCEPTIONS IN A CAREER IS GOOD. Put another way, how many of our receivers caught 20 passes in a season?

    That's an impressive stat. I remember seeing a story about him on Rochester news when visiting in laws. But as stated earlier my brothers in law played in that conference. And having sat through some of their games the term quarterback in that conference is defined by whomever is willing to play the position. Those games normally had a lot of Ints due to such horrible QB play. I cannot emphasize enough how bad the football is in that conference. It was painful to watch at times.

    Once again not saying he can't be a good player. Just saying keep expectations in check considering those stats were against teams that wouldn't even be a good 4A high school team (and that is not an exaggeration).

    He's a preferred walk on. If he sees the two deeps at all he's exceeded my expectations. Best of luck to him though and glad to have him aboard. Even if he doesn't see the field upgrading the talent level of our walk ons and back ups is essential to keep moving the team in an upwards direction.

    I thought the direction was "FORWARD."

    That is actually a Progressive /communist term. Upwards is better.

    Yeah, because why would anyone want progress when life was so much better in the 50s?
