Fall camp continues to rumble on, guys continue to drop like flies (well, not really), and Sammie is still gone.
- Earlier this week, third year walk-on sophomore Tony Carrasco made his decision to leave the team. I'll remember him for the touchdown he scored in the driving rain during the fourth quarter of a 44-10 victory over Arizona State last year. He was a very strong, energetic runner who played with a lot of emotion. As the third string tailback last year, he wanted to go through fall camp this year to see if he could climb the depth chart. With Yvenson Bernard, Patrick Fuller, as well as other young guys getting more reps than him in practice, Tony decided it was time to transfer somewhere else. Said Head Coach Mike Riley: "He's a great worker. He's a major part of our deal, but he wasn't in the playing part. He's a great scout team player."
The title of "Scout team player" wasn't good enough for Tony, so he will look to transfer to another school where he can get more playing time.
- There still hasn't been a decision at quarterback. After last Saturday's scrimmage, the coaches were saying that a decision could come as early as this week. That didn't happen, and now Riley is expecting to choose by early next week. We'll see if that happens.
I'm guessing Canfield, but who knows at this point. Voice your opinion in the poll to the right.
- Alexis Serna chose Taylor Kavanaugh as his holder this week. Alexis' cantidates were Taylor, QB Ryan Gunderson, and WR Aaron Nichols. Taylor, a third year sophomore wide receiver, was a four sport athlete at Lincoln (for those wondering, that's track and baseball at the same time) could also see time at returner this year.
"It's who I feel more comfortable with," Serna said. "I chose Taylor because he worked hard this offseason. He has done a great job this camp. I feel comfortable with him to get the ball down and give me the best look I can get."
There you have it.
