Saints QB Drew Brees offers touching tribute to late grandfather Ray Akins

The fact that he made it back and went on to become a football coach (was impressive), he actually played college football at Southwest Texas University from 1946 to 1950. He had the opportunity to go play center for the Chicago Bears in 1950. They were going to pay him $500 a month so he was going to make Basketball Jerseys For Sale $6,000 a year. Instead of that he decided to go become the athletic director of a 1A high school in South Texas where he was going to be the head football coach and athletic director.

Additionally, as a prospects beat writer, I’m obviously looking forward to seeing how the four current college guys play. Anaheim Ducks draft pick Troy Terry (University of Denver) was the hero of last year’s World Junior Championship and has been one of college hockey’s best players this season. The aforementioned Greenway was another standout at last year’s WJC and brings a power element that you need to have in your lineup. Buffalo Sabres draft pick Will Borgen is a big body and good skater who can defend pretty well, and Boston Bruins pick Ryan Donato of Harvard has been dominant in his junior season.

When it comes to individual rooting interest, however, I think there are just so many great stories on this team — and you know this opportunity means so much to these guys. Just do yourself a favor and watch when Bobby Butler informed his dad he’d be an Olympian. What a moment that was.

Allen Lazard, WR, Iowa State — The Cyclones came away with a 21-20 win over Memphis in the Liberty Bowl and a big reason was Lazard’s performance. The senior caught 10 passes for 142 yards and a touchdown. He is huge at 6-5, 222-pounds and that alone will get NFL teams interested.

Mark McLaurin, S, Mississippi State — It’s unlikely the junior safety is coming out this year, but after a game like he had in the Taxslayer Bowl he deserves a mention. McLaurin had 11 tackles (eight solo) and 1/2 tackle-for-loss. But more impressively he picked off Lamar Jackson three times. Jackson had only one three-interception game in his career coming into Saturday and McLaurin did it all on Cheap Jerseys Usa his own.
