2004 Outlook

- Few actually remember that Freddie Aughtry-Lindsay originally committed to Wake Forest before making an official visit to NC State in December of 2000. "Dash" has seen his minutes and production steadily climb since his freshman year and has emerged as one of State's most consistent and reliable defenders. Has a good nose for the ball and is a prime candidate to become the "go to" LB that State has been missing since the departure of Dantonio Burnette. F-A-L is perhaps best known for his game-winning heroics during the contest with Connecticut in 2003. He returned an interception for a touchdown with just five seconds left in the game to secure a Wolfpack victory. With some talented underclassmen breathing down his neck, much is expected of Aughtry-Lindsay, both on and off the field in 2004. Perhaps the game within the game will be to see which of the Pack's trifecta of linebacker's will come away with the most tackles in 2004. Aughtry-Lindsay (105 tackles in 2003), Oliver Hoyte (97 tackles) and Pat Thomas (130 tackles) form one of the best Wolfpack LB corps in years.

Recognition Potential

- Aughtry-Lindsay certainly has the potential to earn all-conference mention in 2004 but in a league stacked with several great OLB's, it could be a tough chore.
