    Scales Articles In Ames Tribune

    Mid-Iowa Newspapers - Scales looks forward to final season

    If all the players have this type of attitude, we could surprise a few teams this year.

    "I'm trying to finish out everything I do," Scales said. "That's big. If we can finish every rep out, every sprint out, every play out in 7 on 7 drills, hopefully we'll be able to finish out every drive and every game."

    Great article. Now there's a guy that has bought in.

    What a stud. Been hampered with injuries his whole career, but still gives his all. His attitude is similar to Rahshon's.

    Re: Scales Articles In Ames Tribune

    Whenever he got the ball last year, I knew he'd give it is all. He would always fight for extra yards, and a few times was able to get 5-10 more yards out of it. He may not be the flashiest back we have, but I think its safe to say he works the hardest.

    What a great attitude! He's been injured every year he's played, but to come into his Senior year with this attitude speaks towards his resolve and character! Not matter what happens to JS after this year, he's learned an important life lesson and he'll always be a winner.

    Re: Scales Articles In Ames Tribune

    It is really a shame he hasn't been able to stay healthy here. He seems like a really great kid, and obviously has the local ties. Plus I really think he could have been a good physical back, and having a back you could count on to pick up 2 or 3 yards when you had to have it is something this program really could have used the last few years. Good luck this season Scales, I would love to finally see you have a shot to show everyone what you can do.
