Where are they now? Extravaganza

Let's hit some quick highlights here:


Named MVP of the summer league "Revue" he participated in, and managed to sign a contract with the Golden State Warriors. Golden State doesn't release terms of contracts, but it's likely a one year deal. Still music to A-Mo's ears. He only hit 17-23 3 point hots with the Warriors summer league team. He only averaged about 21 points. Heck, if you look at his entire July, including time in the Miami Heat summer league, he hit 27-39 from behind the arc. Sizzling. A-Mo looked good driving to the hoop as well, confounding Tech fans wondering why he kept it a secret for so long.

Yes, Mike is basically getting a 5th year of collegiate football by playing for his college coach. However, when you know the playbook cold, and Chan Gailey has seen your work up close for 4 years, you should feel pretty good. Mike is getting the first team snaps as the KC Chiefs fullback, and he wasn't even drafted. Mike says the playbook is exactly the same (which should really unite Chiefs fans... chortle). Great for Mike

Reggie's season is over. He injured his knee in practice with the Detroit Lions last Friday. I hate it for him, as the Lions were looking for another receiver for camp and he impressed enough to be signed to the practice squad last season.

Tashard looks like he's locked in on the 3rd string spot and it's his to lose. Knowing TC, he's eyeing that #2 spot next.

Keith is being moving back to weakside linebacker, his position of choice. He's turning into a regular ironman in the ATL. Go Keith!

Not a popular WATN, but here it is anyhow. Wilson is working for Jackie Sherrell, the former Miss St, Texas A&M and Pitt coach. Sherrill is president and national coordinator of GameOn Sports Nutrition, a company that produces some kind of sports energy drink. Well, our former recruiting coordinator works for Sherrill at said company. So now you know.......... not that you wanted to.
