When Brandon Antwine looks at the national and SEC championship rings on his fingers, it all feels worth it. The countless hours spent early in the morning and late at night in the Florida training room just to take the practice field with as little pain possible would wear on anyone.

I got a call on New Years Day while I was busy setting up my equipment in San Antonio, Texas to start pumping out work for the US Army All-American Bowl week festivities. I didn't recognize the number but the area code was vaguely familiar. It's hard for me to keep up with individual numbers since I spend so much of my time every night on the phone talking to football prospects.

You would never know it when he's got his game face on, but Brandon Antwine is one of the happiest, sweet natured kids you would ever want to meet. On a football field, the four-star rated (by Scout.com) defensive tackle is as mean and nasty as it gets. Off the field, the Florida commitment is always positive, always happy, a complete joy to talk to.
