Winn's place to show

| No TrackBacks
Well, I made it through two speed traps on I-75 and I-74 to get to Camp Higher Ground in West Harrison, Indiana today.

As strange as it sounds, I really enjoy getting a chance to watch football practice this time of year so I can get a preview of what's to come.

Plus, the hospitality of the dining hall is always top notch and I was able to witness a veteran reporter devour a number of cookies and another threaten to drive out for the evening practice just for the rolls. 

The food is top notch.

So, were the kids I talked to today.  The one I'll post first here is George Winn, senior running back.

Though we all remember Isaiah Pead having a standout game in the Liberty Bowl against Vanderbilt, the longest run of the game came from No. 32 out of Detroit.

Winn had been a solid back-up all year to Pead and he proved his worth when Pead came out with a helmet issue and Winn answered with a 69-yard touchdown run.

That's called effective substitution!

Winn is now battling for the top job in the backfield with the likes of Ralph David Abernathy, sophomore Jameel Poteat and freshman Tion Green among others.  At least early, they'll all likely play.

He's also sporting a pretty respectable beard as you can see from my little video chat:
