Louisville: Former walk-on who earned a scholarship after one year and has become one of the leaders of the football team... has worked hard to develop his body and become a solid offensive tackle... his versatility to play a number of positions on the offensive line has made him one of the most valuable players on the squad... has a strong work ethic and goes about his business with little fanfare.
