    Really excited for Austin Winfield. He's a heat-seeking missile.

    Thanks PharmacyGopher. It looks like two teammates committed to the Gophers today.

    Who will be the next Blak Cashman or Sam Renner?

    Cody Smith & Larry Wright III look like a couple of pretty solid PWO gets.

    The Gophers PWO program seem to be getting a lot of attention. They are going to need it in order to build good team depth. It helps that recruits see kids that earned scholarships like Blake Cashman and Sam Renner achieve success.

    In a lot of ways, kids that weren't offered by P5 programs who have the confidence and the talent have an ideal situation by walking on. They don't necessarily have the pressures of a big time recruit to show the goods sooner than later. They develop through hard work and sheer determination. IMHO, that is the Blake Cashman story. Now, he may have a shot at making an NFL roster.

    One more thing - If we look at Gopher recruiting classes from prior years, how many kids are still with program two, three, or four years down the road? That is one more reason to develop a rewards based PWO program. You reward a scholarship to a proven commodity.

    We are building a nice group of pwos. Kids that we have lost to the Dakota schools in the past. Fleck deserves a lot of credit here.

    I know little about Benilde SM football, but it is likely that Matt Guggemos, who apparently ran a 4.48 40 is the son of Neil Guggemos who played CB and WR at St. Thomas in the mid 80s. Neil was played at Winsted MN Holy Trinity in HS, and was a free agent who spent a little time on NFL camps and was very fast.

    I'm quite certain that he is indeed the son of Neal Guggemos, after a little internet sleuthing. I was a grade school kid at Winsted Holy Trinity when Guggemos played there and he was a (lower case) god who not only starred at St. Thomas but played a couple seasons with the Vikings. Wikipedia
    These are, I must admit, some of my favorite kind of fans. I think sometimes about that line in Woody Allen’s “Crimes and Misdemeanors,” — the main character’s father, a deeply religious man, is asked: “And if all of your faith is wrong … just what if?”

    And the man says: “I’d still have a better life than all those that doubt.”

    Thanks 60's Guy for the correction.

    Many of the kids that we usually lose to FCS programs like NDSU choose to walk-on at the U. We may have the next Blake Cashman or Sam Renner in the pipeline. The nice thing if they can afford to walk-on is that they are not under the spotlight and don't have the heavy pressure/expectations that a scholarship player has. Through hard work, they can focus, earn valuable playing time, and even earn a scholarship. This is good for team depth.

    I am glad that PJ Fleck awards scholies on a regular basis.
