Snippets from Spring Football

Today marks the end of the first week of Spring Football at USC. We were at the field since 9am setting up for practice and we just finished around 2pm.  Here are some things I have learned in my first week in football:
  • If your squad is doing a drill and you have no idea where to stand so as not to get stampeded by 300-lb football players, your best bet is to stand directly behind football players on the sideline. This way, if anything happens, you at least have a 300-lb shield in front of you.
  • He is the sweetest, most considerate guy on the football team. He fully embodies everything that a Trojan should be.

  • Avoid getting in the way of Coach Ogeron. He's not afraid to get into people's faces and yell at them. Heck, I don't think he's ever uttered a sentence without using profanity.

  • The defensive line was doing very well in practice today, making me extremely proud. As their official water girl, I feel slightly involved in their success. I mean, they couldn't do well during the scrimmage without ice cold water, right? I watched the scrimmage versus the offense and I witnessed approximately 5 sacks and 2 interceptions. The whole defensive unit was going wild with celebration.
