We NEED some big 6'5" 290's in the trenches to keep mashing people like we did this past season. You aren't going to root folks out of there with 6'1" 240 lb kids...
If The Del is serious about going on a nice run here in the SoCon for a decade or so, we are going to have to keep bringing in these bigger boys... and KEEP them there... and KEEP them BIG!

Why do you think we fun the triple option? We can not recruit the bigger guys. Give us the 270-280 guys who stay low and quick. Ask USC how those big guys worked out?

Certainly worked for one year...

There are 17 names on this list, and looking at the roster, it looks like all 17 are still in school.
Is this true? We haven't lost anyone from this class???? __________________ LTC (Ret.)

With spring practice on the horizon who in this class besides the 3 that played last season will have a chance to see the field and push for playing time as a redshirt freshman ? My guess would be bailey , Rainey or Samuels as all 3 have a great hs resume for whatever that is worh .
I can see a few of the new class that we just signed as well make a push in August.
