"I can jog," he said. "Just knowing I have a big opportunity like this continues to motivate me. It makes me want to work that much harder so I can compete right away when I get to Boise."

"I talk to Bryan (Douglas) a lot," said Richardson. "He tells me not to rush back and to take it easy. He wants me to just let it come to me. I'm real excited to compete with him in practice just like we did at Narbonne."
