    Lazard story in Sports Spotlight

    Hey all,

    Depending on where you live, you might already have access to the print magazine at your nearest Casey's. For those of you who don't, here is our online digital version (which also includes previews for every district in the state, in addition to what was in the print).

    My story on Lazard is on page 73. Hope you enjoy it! I certainly enjoyed working on it.

    Good write up. Nice reading about his dad's backstory a bit.

    I thought Ernie Allen was his grandfather.

    Re: Lazard story in Sports Spotlight

    I love hearing he started out at and dominated as a DB! That excites me as much as hearing about his WR skills.

    Don't know if that would translate to B12 play, but still a great background to have played both positions.

    It definitely makes a difference.
    1) There are bad thrown balls where the receiver needs to turn into a DB and just knock a probable interception away. His CB experience will definitely help here.
    2) Every team has some sort of hail mary defensive package and having extra big bodies with speed, quickness and experience breaking up passes is a great asset to have. Many receivers can do it, but the trick is to not draw the flag when you are doing it and not all of them will have that last part.

    Good story about Lazard's respect for his mother's dad. Like Ernie has assured me, Allen will stay committed to the Clones! Hope Ernie will be able to watch his grandson's career in Ames and beyond!

    The things he said about how he wants to be a leader for his team and help build it up (not unlike what he's helped do at Urbandale) planted the story idea in my head, and when we talked about his grandpa a few minutes later, the things he said cinched it. That's when I knew he wasn't going anywhere but Iowa State.
