Tight Ends


The other day, imabulldog asked about the tight end situation. So I spoke with tight ends coach Reed Stringer today before practice. Right now he’s getting first-stringer Marcus Green, a redshirt freshman, healed up (hip), along with sophomore third-stringer Brandon Henderson, who missed practice today with a sprained toe (he should play Saturday). Second-stringer Nelson Hurst is a true freshman and the biggest of the three at 6-4, 240.

Stringer on Green: “He’s doing a lot better. He just has a little (injury), and he played through it in the game the other day. We want him to be healthy, because when he’s healthy and full-speed, he’s a weapon.”

On Green and Hurst: “We played well last week, to be a true freshman and a redshirt freshman, the majority of the snaps they played well. And they’re both going to be back out there again this week. We’ve got to improve this week. There’s some technique things we’ve got to get better at, and I expect them to improve each week.”

    thanks Brad, good job.

    Hey 2th that field is beautiful ain’t it. Can’t wait!

    If it’s rained as much in Starkville has it has in Jackson this summer, then Scott Field should look better than ever.

    The TE position is pretty important to our offense, we always seem to need that extra guy who can slip out and get open. I just hope Green is more athletic than he looked running the ball on Saturday. It wasnt his fault, you just dont call the old TE around play at mid field 🙂

    I don’t know about yall-But I cant wait to hear those bells ringing!!!

    BTW, wheres our team entering the field at?

    I hear they’re going to parachute in. That would be pretty cool-looking, wouldn’t it?

    It’s eating me up. Gonna have to miss the first game. My wife is due no later than Monday morning. I’ll be there for Auburn though. Don’t worry though. There will be rear ends in my seats.

    Unless they take lessons from the guy back in the 90’s who thudded at the goal line.

    Sweet maybe they can high five Skydawg as the pass by 🙂

    Atta boy Draws!

  10. Brad Locke Says:

    Here’s hoping for a fast and safe delivery, draws. First one?

  11. bigdraws Says:

    Thanks man. I’ve got a 2 1/2 year old daughter. Also born during football season. Yeah, I know…….

  12. Brad Locke Says:

    It’s OK. I had to miss the Winston All-Star race one year because my wife was close. It’s all about timing.

  13. maroon1white Says:

    Brad, since your taking requests. Whats with Templeton Hardy? I don’t see where he was red shirted, and I heard so much about his possible impact for the team. Didn’t see him in the Tech game.

  14. Brad Locke Says:

    Hardy, good as he is, still will have to fight for playing time. MSU signed seven D-linemen this year, and apparently Sean Ferguson and Joshua Jackson have made the biggest impressions among the freshman group. Plus, MSU has a good bit of experience back at the tackle positions.

    I can try to get you a more specific answer later today, though.

  15. maroon1white Says:

    Nah, thats cool you explained it well enough. I’m more concerned how Jamie’s going to fill Jamar’s shoes. Hopefully, he’s a diamond in the rough. We’re going to need him to adjust quickly, as in this week. I would like to know if Elliot plans to show out now that he knows he’s gonna touch the field. I’ve been waiting for so long for State to have that player that lights up the scoreboard, and his jersey sells out the bookstore. Norwood tried but he couldn’t do it all by himself. thanks for getting back with me so quick your a man of the people.
