Webster Back In The Groove

One Bearcat who has seen his on-field time increase is Aaron Webster. The Michigan native showed signs of stardom as a freshman only to see an injury slow down his progress. We spoke with Webster about where he's at today and the fight to get back on the field.

Today Bearcat Insider had a chance to meet up with Aaron Webster and speak about how he has been fairing since the injury he suffered before the International Bowl. While last season may have seen the Wylie E. Groves High School (Beverly Hills, Michigan) product not at 100%, watching Webster practice now its evident that if he's not 100% than he was pretty darn close.

Flying around and making plays all over the field, Webster's an absolute athlete if you ask me.

When asked about what it took to get back into playing form for this season, Aaron stressed it was certainly not an easy process.

"I tore a few tendons in my knee, and I had surgery to fix it. I was out for eight months but now I don't think about it. If I want to play my game I have to look past it."

When asked if it was a mind over matter situation the 6-foot-3, 195-pound safety laughed a little bit and said that he has to have a short memory and can not be thinking about a past injury if he's going to make plays on the field.

Aaron Webster has been an added surprise early this season and seems to still have every bit of his 4.5 40-speed. But don't think for a minute Aaron Webster is satisfied.

"I can always improve; there are places in my game where I need to get better."

As part of one of college footballs top defensive backfields the junior knows not to get too big of a head as seniors Mike Mickens and Brandon Underwood help keep him humble.

One thing is for sure. Aaron Webster is a young man who exudes class and never seems to get a big head. He's also willing to lay it all out on the field every week and is an absolute asset in the Bearcats defensive backfield.
