Its been a long time since I've had any 'real' contact with the Iowa State Football team until about a month ago.This week was great !! Thanks again to Coachs' Rhoades-Burnham-Elliot- Bray . I came away from this past week with great expextations for our LB core. A.J. Klein is by far the best LB we have and he has a potential future at the next level.He is legit. Give him 2 years and he'll be a Butkus Award Winner guy. I spent most of my time with Jeremiah George and he is an All American in the waiting.He's pretty. He has big biceps. He is a stud in the weightroom.He looks like a bodybuilder.But...I can tell you that none of that matters....and he is finnaly starting to figure that out.His sqaut has went up 20 lbs. and Dead-Clean has went up over 35 lbs. from the time he reported.That means more than any bench or curl that he was doing. I seen him weigh in Fri. morn at 218. The body is there. He just needs to learn how to play LB at a Big 12 level. His first 2 steps are holding him back. He has great speed. His first step is what he needs to learn with playing time or through reps @ practice.He needs the expierence of avoiding or shedding the block. Its a learning process and he knows that.He told me that practicing vs. The First Team everday has taught him alot already. I expect good things from this guy in the future!
