Spring practice for college football teams is nearing, and fans are beginning to get excited about the prospects of the upcoming season not even two months after the previous season concluded.
But more importantly than the excitement of the fans is the excitement from those players looking to make a statement early in 2013.

Frankly, that’s the entire team.
There are definitely some players that have more to gain than others, though. Whether it’s a junior college transfer who doesn’t want to spend time on the bench after tearing it up for a year or two at a community college or an upperclassman who feels he has paid his dues to the team, there are players that will be giving that extra ounce of effort during every wind sprint.
