Yesterday was my final picture day. We had all of our individual photos, all of our position and senior photos. What photos I will remember the most are those of my first two friends on the squad. We took a picture of us coming in as freshmen and of course I had to take the picture of me as a senior just to complete the before and after.

Our first full contact scrimmage with refs was today. Since morning meetings the whole stadium was in game mode. We conducted walk-throughs and meetings just as we would before facing an opponent. This scrimmage was the first full contact day we've had in a few days so we were all anxious to throw our bodies around. The scrimmage went well. We saw some good things and bad things on both sides of the ball. My overall assessment is that we are on our way to our goal, but we aren't there yet. We have to use this last few weeks to learn as much as possible. Then I know we can be ready to face anyone. HERE is the live chat play by play of the scrimmage, courtesy of www.kentsportsreport.com

The schedule today, at first, is pretty routine. Wake up bright and early, head to eat at the stadium for a great breakfast, get dressed, and head to watch film with the Linebackers. I have to say that this year is looking good for the KSU linebacker corps. We have returning players with a ton of experience. the new guys seem to be learning the defense very quickly which is good for competition. The starters, as of now, are the same as coming out of camp but there are some players stepping their game up. It was a beautiful day today to start afternoon practice. Speed was emphasized with linebacker drills while also working a lot with tackling. All things we are trying to perfect before we get pads on. 7 on 7 was played pretty well by the Linebackers but there is a lot of room for improvement. There was the first interception of the day by Sam Linebacker, Byron Tyson who took one to the house for the highlight of the practice. All and all the linebackers had a pretty good day. However, if we are going to be a championship team, good isn't what we are looking for. Everyday we are going to work hard to become GREAT. This was the second day of many to become a better linebacker corps and we are going to take advantage of every one. Tomorrow is the first day with pads. Look forward to that article.
