Ferguson talks about Husky Junior Day

A talented running back coming off an injury from this past season, Kentridge RB Alex Ferguson is a player who knows he has his work cut out for him. He just finished rehab on his blown out knee and he's been cleared to start playing sports again. He also made the 35-minute drive north to Montlake this past weekend to take in the Husky Junior Day and he talked about his visit with the coaches.

"It was really good and really insightful," Ferguson told Dawgman.com recently. "It was about what I expected and it showed me what I need to do to play D-1 football.

"It really helped me out because I know I have a lot to do right now."

"The coaches are really insightful. When we went to position meetings I really liked how they showed off the new players and how they teach the stuff that the players need to know. The coaches were really just all around nice guys."

Ferguson blew out his right ACL and Meniscus in the third game of the season and he's been rehabbing non-stop since the end of September.

"Just got done with rehab and I can start playing sports again," Ferguson said gleefully. "I know for offseason training I'm still going to hit the weight room hard. I'm trying to get my lifts up and get stronger.

"We're also starting speed training soon so that's going to help me get my speed back. During the summer I'm going to go to some football camps and combines, but I just have to sit down and figure out which ones."

Ferguson ran a 4.6 forty before his injury so it remains to be seen how much of that speed he gets back. There is no question he's strong though. Recently he put up 300 pounds on the squat, his first attempt following his rehab, and he plans to be in the mid 400's before his season starts while setting a goal of 345 on the bench as well.

We'll have more from Ferguson in the coming months.
