    I thought that I’d start a place to collect notes on all of the ’14 football reshmmen. We’ve heard a lot about all of the JC transfers, but mentions of the incoming frosh are a little harder to come by.

    For example, I’ve heard Jevohn Miller and CPR mention that Reggan Nortrup and Cole Anderson were “picking up things quickly.

    Then there was the mention that Martinez Syria and Michael Warren are new best friends, and calling themselves “Thunder and Lightningâ€.

    Finally, I picked up a passing mention by CPR from his Sunday press conference:
    Not sure if they'll play this year orr not, that might depend on how well Damien Lawry is doing behind Jarvis.

    So, anyone else picked up any tidbits on the freshman noobies? :biggrin:

    I think Salters is going to be a good one. I was very impressed watching him on film.

    I meant to include it above, but I saw that Salters and Warren both ran 10.71 100m this past track season, and Wesley ran a 10.83, despite a hamstring injury. Speed kills!

    CW slipped this goodie in, and I almost missed it:


    An interesting statement, and I'm not completely sure what to make of it, other than "He's not ready to go this year". Thanks, Chris!

    I am probably not the only one that watches what is going on in the background of the videos posted on CycloneTV.com. On one video (in the backgrround) there was a receiver absolutely flying down the field. I had to check my jersey numbers. It was Orion Salters. I think he will develop into a "Aaron Horne" type receiver.

    Hopefully an "Aaron Horne" type receiver that catch catch the ball on a regular basis...

    Unfortunately, I have problems with Neulion vids when they run, and don't have a video downloader that will handle that format.

    Thanks for the note, though. The kid is a whole lot faster than I expected when he committed. Future returner, too, I think.

    I've been quietly hoping that Run DLC is going to be the real deal for us down the road, so this comment by Rhoads leaves me a bit worried about him. Says they are working on how to grip the football, etc. Hopefully they really like what they see out of him and just want to get his mechanics all right before proceeding much further with him?

    Hence the reason they recruited him.
