    In the comments, someone had the Polar Bear at 675 lbs. on that lift. Not sure if accurate, but a crazy amount of weight for a true frosh regardless. Eek

    Chris Walker and Damian Jackson are solid rocks and hope they can find a role.
    Damian Jackson as short yardage/goal line LB might be good.

    I’ve also said they should make a special package original I formation with him at FB

    It would be cool but you see that guy check in at LB and all you are going to do is audible to a playfake or a pass to your RB. It is really hard to do defensive packages unless you are just an edge rusher.

    Wasn't Jackson working as a long-snapper? I could see that as way for him to get on the field.

    I thought about that- it would have to be part of the design- he’d basically be a 4th DL with some more mobility. Also easier to man up to anyone in tight spaces (goal line)
    He’s working at OLB now, but not sure he can be an every down guy there.

    I know he tried it, but it may have fizzled.
    Moved to OLB for now.

    I realize Walker was hurt last season but always thought he was better suited as a OT than a DT based on seeing him play several times at Lincoln East.

    Yeah, more of a 4th DL would make a lot more sense.

    What was y’alls peak lift metrics? I’m washed up now but benched 390, squated 600, and pulled 550 in college. I struggle to bench 135 10 times now.

    The key was to put the bench just under 400 instead of over it.

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see him as the starter. He was the backup last year.

    I hope he's okay. Given his lifestyle I think he might be somewhat at risk from COVID.

    Me too, I miss his post around here. I didn't always agree with him but he was consistent with thoughts and ideas.
