The Surratt Brothers: The Next Great Football Family

When you hear the term “football families”, names like the Mannings, McCafferys and Matthews immediately enter the average football fans mind. These families have captivated the viewing audience for several generations now, showing that the apple really doesn’t fall far from the tree. If you have been following the 2019 college football season, the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) in particular, the Surratt name is one that has dominated the headlines. One older brother in Chapel Hill, the younger in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The ladder of the two has been especially spectacular this season. During the 2018 season,...

2020 NFL Draft: Antoine Winfield Jr. and the Pedigree for Success

It wasn’t long ago that Antoine Winfield was establishing himself as one of the more interesting chess pieces for the Buffalo Bills and the Minnesota Vikings over a rock solid fourteen NFL seasons that included three pro bowl berths. During that time, Winfield managed to collect 27 interceptions while breaking up 117 passes. And while those types of numbers are nice numbers to hang your hat on, Winfield is nowhere near encapsulated by pass breakups or plays on the football. He did the majority of his work during the early parts of his career on the perimeter...

2020 NFL Draft: Lynn Bowden Jr., “Mr. Do it All” for the University of Kentucky

While scrolling for miscellaneous box scores from this week’s slate of games, you may not be familiar with the leading passer of the Kentucky Wildcats during their 24-20 victory over the University of Arkansas. That is most likely due to the fact that that quarterback has nearly six times as many receptions (116) during his time as a Wildcat as pass attempts (21). The other most likely reason you didn’t recognize the name of quarterback Lynn Bowden Jr., is because Bowden is more well known as Kentucky’s leading receiver, and most dynamic playmaker offensively. With starting quarterback...

Three straight losing seasons, an unproven roster and uncertainty at the quarterback position all presented some varied levels of concern for the Aggies program. Those concerns quickly dwindled after a near upset victory over Michigan State in...
