The kind of guys you gotta have - great ST’ers. Good signings.

Not just ST’ers. A lot of development guys play on teams for the Elks. Adds that extra opportunity to get them in the game here and there to evaluate where they are at…

Totally agree. I REALLY like what they’ve done on ST’s. Kicking needs work but they led the league in fewest K/O return yds allowed. Got some talent there. With 5 of the 1st 21 picks in the draft & 7 in the top 31, more good prospects are likely on the way.

And Alexander looks like a keeper @ returner. Happened to catch a long interview with Grymes post season. Asked if Ford was the fastest on the team, he said the consensus is Alexander is faster. Though Ford would likely race him to disprove it. :smiley::smile::grin:
