Bazemore, who was clad in a white #60 jersey, was very appreciative of the opportunity to impress the Lions coaching staff and to get film of himself to show to the other 31 NFL teams in case the opportunity with the Detroit Lions doesn't work out.
"I want to thank the organization for picking me [to come to this camp], said Bazemore. "There's a lot of universities out there, a lot of guys that were dying for a chance just to get a tryout like I did and I just want to the coach Cullen, coach Marinelli and coach Henderson just for giving me an opportunity to play some more football."
Bazemore talked about the experience.
"It was fun. At first, guys were kind of nervous but as practices went on guys joked with one another and we came together just having fun playing football."
We wondered if the Lions gave him any kinds of hints or clues that they might want to sign him following the conclusion of the weekend's activity?
"It was strictly football. Football and life lessons. They said they were going to evaluate the tape on Monday and Tuesday and if things work out, they'll give you a call, but if not, you're on tape, so if another team happens to want you, if there's anyway they can help they said just give them a call and they'll send your cut-up to that team."
So Bazemore said it will be an anxious couple of days waiting and hoping a phone call comes in to his agent, Grand Rapids based Justin VanFulpen of Core Sports Management.
Bazemore said if he doesn't get the call, he would like to continue pursuing the dream of playing on Sunday's but right now, he only has eyes for Detroit.
"We're just focusing on going out giving my best effort [here] and making this my priority since its my first option. Then taking it step-by-step, day-by-day from there."
