10:29 pm
he is we have to be ready. george says he's playing what kind of boost does that give your offense if he can go 100%? i don't know if he will be a 100 percent at least thought he looked decent practice today and will want to see what he looks like during the course of the of the week and certainly is a big boost for our football team anytime you have top seniors gets back. final game for your seniors what a class you know desmond, cj , lashun you can go down the line jaleel. yeah you know 14 guys have done such a great job not just this year but and one of the neat things about being a coach is you get to watch watch the growth and development over 4 years some other cases five in case of ron coluzzi only been here basically since i last june i like to see how they fit in with the team in the growth in the roles that they play the dynamics involved but that's the fun part about this job you know because when we get to see a lot of things behind the scenes others don't have the chance. very emotional for those guys on senior day right before the kick off how do you get them back down
10:30 pm
about it. it is a very emotional deal you got your parents out there it's just a really special setting youve got to try to get the guys to atleast think ahead of time about what comes afterwards cause it is a really emotional thing. for coaches to this is your final time with steve how do you get into the game. it is tough tough with other seniors but then when it is your own kids it makes it a double jeopardy deal so i guess i'm really thanksgiving but just really appreciative of the opportunity three of our sons of had to be in the program and all 5 kids have been graduates its pretty special thing too so it's all good. former hawkeye linebacker abdul hodge will be the honorary captain for friday's game. and remember you can watch the annual hy-vee heroes game friday live right here on kcrg tv-9 with coverage starting at 2:30. congrats to uni senior defensive end karter schult who was named the missouri

"karter shult, he's in the same mold in the same type of mindset as and talent set as these guys playing today on sunday afternoons, he fits that same temperament. how he came in here and worked for four years, made himself into the player he is today. he practices hard as he plays and those are the ones that make it when they get their opportunity in the nfl. so yes, there is no question, i think he is the most legitimate one on the football team that's an nfl prospect on this football team" sot :31 oc: "prospect on this football team " 16 games into the season and the roughriders were still looking for their first win tonight against chicago. lets head to the stable. and he shoots and just misses. are these players getting smaller or is
