2017 Samford Team Info

Congrats to Shaheed Salmon who has won the Charles Williams Memorial Jersey Award, and will wear the #5.

Over 100 players currently on the roster. According to the new roster, some have grown both in height and weight(hopefully muscle).
One I want to mention is OL Robert Hatcher who must have worked relentlessly to drop from 360 pounds down to 315. :o KUDOS.

Other changes I noticed:
LB Shaheed went from 6-1 226 to 6-2 232
DB Omari Williams, 6-1 190 to 6-1 200.
OL Connor Rafferty 6-3 290 to 6-3 305.
OL Alfred Brown 6-3 256 to 6-4 275.
OL George Grimwade 6-6 290 to 6-8 305.
OL Nate Lee 6-5 310 to 6-5 325.
OL Reid Hulgan 6-4 280 to 6-4 295.
DL Justin Foster 6-5 255 to 6-5 275.
DL Xavier Forrest 6-2 280 to 6-3 295.
DL Horace Roberts 6-2 295 to 6-3 312.

There certainly were others, but these are a significant few that changed their stats according to the roster. We now show 8 players who are 300 pounds or over. We will certainly field one of the biggest(if not the biggest) offensive and defensive lines in the conference. OK, I know all the old cliché's about size, but I can also remember seeing Samford line up with players that looked like high schoolers against their huge opponents. Now, we have some real talent to go with this tremendous size. Coaches have to coach 'em up and get the results. I think it will be a good year.

GO DOGS!!!!!

I'm excited. But also a little bummed. This will be the first time in about 9 years that I don't have a kid playing football. I'm going through some withdrawals already and it's not even football season yet. :lol: :( :| :) :)

Alright, I'm in. I'll pose a question, that I answer myself and invite others to answer. Hopefully that will spark some conversation.
Biggest certainty, biggest hope, biggest worry. To make it interesting to compare, try and follow the format of my answers.

1. I am certain that: Despite some very important departures, we will score a boatload of points this year.
2. I hope that: We can December well enough to get to the top of our league this year.
3. I'm worried that: Always worried about a late season slump. That said, the end of season schedule seems pretty favorable, so maybe this year I worry most about a mid season stumble. Check it the middle third of our schedule. We better be rolling by then.

Im waiting till the starting line up notes to comment. The roster looks like it should. No missing players that I've noticed. I wonder if the new #3 and #9 will play this year

Limited Contribution....Feels good to be back!

1. I am certain that: The offense will run the ball better than Fubear thinks they will.
2. I hope that: We prepare our talent this year, we lose a lot of folks (21) next year.
3. I'm worried that: We will go undefeated in the SoCon and ruin my previous prediction of going 7-1.
