Wollschlager Enters Final Weeks of Practice

Senior OL Anthony Wollschlager enters his final weeks of practice as a Miami Hurricane.

Anthony Wollschlager finished up his academic career for the University of Miami this week, graduating with a masters degree in business administration.

"Coming here is an ongoing thing," Wollschlager said of his time at Miami. "It's nonstop. The moments you make and friends you make are forever. Any time I hang out with the team, specifically the offensive line, was great. We barbecue a lot, we go to each other's houses, and we go to the pool if someone has one. It was just a blast. Anything that we do together is a blast."

While Wollschlager is reminiscent of his time here, he understands that there is still one more game to play. He and the offense returned to practice on Thursday in hopes of reigniting the offense under new coordinator Todd Berry, who runs more of a spread offense. Wollschlager had several words of praise for Berry and for the tone of the practices this past week.

"Practice is fun, very fun. I like him [Berry] a lot. I think he's an awesome coach and a great man. He's got a lot of character and I'm real psyched to be able to play for him. He just makes it fun. That's what is easy to love about him."

Wollschlager, a fifth year senior, will play in his last game as a Hurricane on the 31st when the ‘Canes take on Nevada in the MPC Computers Bowl in Boise, Idaho. After that, he plans on entering the NFL draft, where he is hopes to be drafted. While he acknowledges that the thought of being drafted is exciting, he said he remains focused on the game.

"Obviously it's [the NFL] on the back of my mind and everything. First thing's first though, we have to take care of Nevada and get out of here with a win. But it's back there, in the back of my mind."
