"My senior season workouts are going real good right now," Gio Bernard said. "Everyone is coming to practice at 9:00 a.m. for the most part except for a few guys that are taking some visits. The recruiting process is starting to slow down as I have narrowed my list to nine teams.

It is going to be real exciting and I am trying to enjoy the moment."
