Jersey Numbers Set For Football Newcomers

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

After all the hubbub of the conference realignment landscape over the past week or so, it sure is refreshing to actually talk about football for a change.  And even though we're in the middle of summer, we're not very far away from the start of two-a-days, which start in early August!

The team is going through voluntary summer workouts here in Columbia, with everyone taking some level of summer classes to keep them working toward their degree plan.  The workouts, by all accounts, are going very well.  We'll work on a more detailed report soon, but according to junior WR Brandon Gerau, who we caught up with earlier this week, things are accelerated from previous years.  "We're already past where we were last year at the end of the summer," he said.  Gerau said that one big conditioning test involving sprints was completed at the beginning of workouts, and that same test wasn't done until the end of last summer.  "That makes us feel good that we're way ahead of the pace we set last year," he said.

One thing that fans always enjoy looking at is what number their favorite Tigers will wear.  The jersey numbers have been set for the fall, and while things can possibly change between now and then, here's a look at what numbers the newcomers will be wearing...
