    ...that there is a new kick returner.

    Whether it is due to Lockridge being out (shoulder injury) or taking on bigger role at RB, or just flat out benched....

    Not sure.

    Espy? Seems like the logical ( in the coaches mind) choice....:huh:

    Last I checked I think Espy was 3rd string for KR. Awesome.

    Maybe Riddle got around to teaching Simmons how to catch the ball and run it towards the other end zone?

    Hmmmm...

    Parker Orms (I could see them burning his redshirt for 6 games of KR)
    Corey Nabors
    Q. Hildreth (See Orms)
    A. Jaffee
    Cameron Ham

    I can't see Burney doing it.

    I'm going with local walk on...

    Either Nabors or Jaffee

    We always here about Jaffee's speed, so that's my guess.

    I hope they don't burn a redshirt to get somebody back there, since Scott should be back for at least the last couple games.... :huh:

    Gotta be Ebner or Espy - Simmons aint local and would make too much sense.

    You have to wonder: if Simmons and the rest of our fan faves who rarely play aren't meeting hawk's stringent expectations why did he even bother recruiting them?

    And he's already played in a conference game so redshirting is not an option.

    I also remember seeing his highlight reel, half of them being on kick off returns.

    It's not like he's a freshman either. Guy's half way through his junior year and has 1 catch. Good 'ol hawk. You can always count on him to waste talent. What's Blake Mackey doing these days? Probably selling life insurance. :huh:

    In a way I wish it was Hildreth. The kid should have been picked up on a scholly somewhere, but didn't know how to get the word out. If they play him and he's as good as he was in the past, even a little, he'll be on his way to earning the scholarship he deserves.

    disclaimer: I am 100% an East High Homer. I see everything in East-colored glasses when you are talking 'bout my boys. But he's good, he's really really good.

    They should put Cody Hawkins back there, you know with his speed and athletic ability. Then he would not have to come off the sidelines to QB, and maybe we would not get a delay of game....just a thought...

    If I remember things right Simmons was a STUD at the juco level running back punts, he must have been able to catch the ball.:huh: I think Simmons is too Big and strong for Hawk and staff, He might make a player miss a tackel on the other team and that would look bad in the film room for the kid.:cry:

    Your starting Safety should never be returning kicks.

    Among other reasons, the risk of injury is a simple answer. Polk was our leading tackler against KSU and is our last line of defense, the drop off to the next guy at his position is huge, and polk has little experience returning kicks.

    the guy they should be using is Simmons, if he is as good as reported; Jaffee is an option too is he really is that quick.
