Two stars of the summer, and there were many, were senior linebacker Shaun Lewis and sophomore offensive tackle Devin Davis.
Davis is 6-5 and is now listed at 298 pounds. He looks like he could play center in the NBA. Last year he was listed at 6-5, 290 pounds. He told me he cut one group out of his diet as he learned something.
"Well, I had to end up giving up a lot of dairy products because I learned I'm lactose intolerant," explained Davis, who is from Nacogdoches, Texas, and listed as the starter at left tackle on offense on the depth chart.
"I went in there (weight room) and made my mind up that I was going to do the best I could this year."
Lewis is a senior "star" linebacker who has played extensively since his freshman season. I joked with him that if he was on the beach instead of at practice he would be getting plenty of attention. He laughed at that, but what he did this summer was serious business.
"I knew that I had to put in the work, not only for myself but for my teammates in order for us to have the year we want to have," said Lewis. "Without a doubt we were out there pushing each other, competing with each other, and that is the only way you get better."
Lewis is listed at 5-11, 225 pounds, which is the same as a year ago but you can see it is distributed just a little different and he is more muscular for sure. You know, looks like he would attract attention at the beach.
