Ragland Takes Part in Bulldog Camp

Mississippi State's June camp sessions are in the final weekend. On Friday close to 100 campers took part in the one day camp including Raymond, Mississippi standout Colby Ragland. The 6-6, 295 pounder was one of several offensive lineman working under the supervision of Bulldog D line boss, David Turner.

"Camp went really well," Ragland said. "I really learned a lot and it was a good experience. It was my second year here. I am just glad to be here and have a chance to be a part of all of this."

The central Mississippi product reports that the time he spent sharpening the proverbial saw with Coach Turner was time well spent.

"He talked with me about getting faster and doing better on my footwork," Ragland said. "He worked us pretty hard and I learned a lot."

The Mississippi State June camp sessions will not be the only attempts Ragland gets to showcase his skill this summer in his quest to earn a spot on the college roster.

"I am headed to another camp next month," Ragland said. "I am going to be doing a lot of training. I am just trying to get faster, get better."

Ragland currently holds a pair of junior college offers as he prepares for the fall. This season, Ragland believes Raymond High School will tale a step forward on the grid iron.

"I think we're looking good," Ragland said. "I think that the future is bright. We have a lot of people coming back and I think we're going to be a lot better than we were last year."
