Weight gain and loss for players


Recommended Posts

I already had Tonka on my 'Projected Defensive Starters' team in the associated thread but I had no idea he was up above 295. Hemingway is a grinder who I believed would start at 270...at 295 plus he is going to be a handful. JJ, Burch, Pickens and Hemingway is a legit D-line.

The Strachan kid up from 220 to 246 is a bunch! If he can get after the QB like he has been doing I could see him at 'Buck' and JJ at that end causing serious issues off the edge.

I remember Tonka saying back in March that because he had always been a three sport athlete growing up and in high school...football, basketball and baseball...impressive for a kid that big...that he always had trouble keeping weight on but now that he was just playing football he could concentrate on staying in the weight room and eating right year round.

Apparently he meant it.  

I had him on my 'starting D' list because of all that athleticism and work ethic...that extra 25 pounds of added muscle only confirms my opinion of him.

Tonka to me seems like one of those guys that just gets it.  Knows if he comes in works his butt off on every play and gives max effort every down he will have an opportunity to play at the next level.  That type of attitude can be infectious on a team and make everyone work a little harder.

I could see myself as a semi-retired playwright chillin' at my local bar down in the Florida Keys during the week after getting some work done with my CAT D-9 dozer during the work day.

Then go to Miami for the night life on the weekends in my Ferrari.

Work hard.  Play hard.

I could dig it, man.
