Now that the regualr season is over and we have put up the white helmets for the year, I would like to pay homage to a couple of seniors that have worked their asses off, played hard, and played very well all four years they were allowed on the field. On defense, a giant hat tip to Colby Whitlock. Colby has anchored a defense riddled with injory and full of less experienced players. He kept his head up and his butt down and just worked to get his job done. Well done Colby. My favorite play was his tackle in the ut game to get us a game leading safety.
On offense the MVP of this bunch of seniors has to be Lyle Leong. With hands like glue, the accrobatic senior made catch after catch. His knack of getting open, creating separation, elevating at the right moment was a pleasure to watch. While not he biggest knife in the drawer, his blocking skills improved year after year. HIs catch in the Alamo Bowl where he seemed to get 6 or 7 feet off the ground was a thing of beauty.
Gonna miss you guys. God's speed.
