RE: INside The Walls of Troy
The players: Offensive line

July 22, 2010
By Drew Champlin

We’re back with the fourth in a series of position previews. As previously noted, we’ll get to all of the scholarship players and walk-ons in the rotation. This is a big group of guys, so if I’ve missed a player or have eligibility wrong, please let me know.

SENIORS
***Coaches didn’t know who Tyler Clark was until about a month before the fall camp in 2007 started. Halfway into that year, he was a walk-on starter at left guard. Now, he might be the best lineman in the Sun Belt and makes the move to center. This is up for debate, but he could be the player Troy can least afford to lose.

***Tyler Graves came to Troy as a junior college transfer and played on the right side of the line. This year, he’ll start at left guard and should be solid there. Graves also worked at center and if Clark goes down, he could slide there.

***Nate Newland saw a little bit of action last year at right tackle and played a lot there this spring. He’s listed as a backup at left tackle, but coaches determine their offensive line rotation order by how good a player is. So, if Newland is the No. 6 lineman, he’d be the first off the bench and they’d rotate players accordingly. I believe Newland will be in that 6-7 range as his versatility allows him to play all tackle and guard spots.

Troy adds defensive line depth

By Drew Champlin
Published: July 22, 2010

So, portions of the 2010 media guide came out on TroyTrojans.com, and a few names stuck out at me. I called sports information director Ricky Hazel to check on them.

***Defensive tackle Jeremy Elder is already in school. He’s listed as a 6-foot-4, 275-pound junior from College Park, Ga. by way of Georgia Military. Elder started his career at Alabama, but ran into some legal trouble (armed robbery) two years ago. That link was the last I could find on him, but he’s enrolled at Troy.

***Defensive end Scardino Daniels is listed at 6-foot-5 and 250 pounds from Pearl River Community College. Daniels should be a junior. No idea how good he’ll be, but bigger schools have recruited him in the past. He’s got to be eligible, though, and he’s not in school yet. The plan is for him to be here this fall.

The players: Defensive line

By Drew Champlin
Published: July 24, 2010

This is a fifth in a series of position previews looking at the scholarship guys (or walk-ons who could have a role) on the 2010 roster. Defensive line is a deep position, so please let me know if I’ve overlooked someone (as I had on the OL), or if I have the eligibility wrong.

SENIORS
***I really think Mario Addison can be an all-conference player. He’s faster than Lang and Sheffield, running close to a 4.5 from the defensive end spot, but he’s just had to wait his turn. I expect a big year out of him.

***Emmanuel Dudley could play a lot at one defensive tackle spot. He’s listed as a senior on the roster, but played 3 games last year as a junior before not playing any more and they’re expected to apply for a medical redshirt for Dudley.

***Riley Flowers might start this year. He’s listed as a starter heading into fall camp. He’s a big body. He’ll battle Dudley in one spot, more than likely. He’s also listed as a senior but look at Dudley’s description and the same eligibility applies to him.

RE: INside The Walls of Troy
Trojans Have Many Holes To Fill
Team set to report on Friday
Troy Media Relations
7/26/2010 2:47:35 PM

[Image: rp_primary_Harris_DuJuan09BGSU07.jpg]

In the spring of 1996, Trojans football coach Larry Blakeney was worried. Worried sick.

The 1995 Trojans had gone through an undefeated regular season, but had lost 25 seniors who were all major contributors to the success of that team. Entering the spring, Blakeney and the coaching staff was not sure what might lie ahead.

“That may have been the best football team we’ve had, and we were worried sick going into the spring,” Blakeney said as he opens his 20th spring practice as the Trojans head coach. “Guys like Stan Davis came in and a bunch of other players grew up and over-achieved, and that is what we need this year. I think we lost 25 seniors off the 1995 team and came back in 1996 and beat everyone we could beat before losing to Montana in the semifinals.”

The 2010 Trojans won’t have to replace 25 seniors, but there are major holes to fill for the four-time defending Sun Belt Conference champions.

RE: INside The Walls of Troy
The players: Linebacker

July 27, 2010
By Drew Champlin

We’re almost to the end. Let’s take a look at the scholarship or walk-on linebackers expected to have a role this year. If there’s a missing name or messed up eligibility, let me know

SENIORS

***The long, lean Daniel Sheffield made the move from safety to linebacker prior to last season and started, but split time with David McDowell at the nickel/SAM spot. Sheffield’s one of the few experienced players returning and despite missing spring after shoulder surgery, will be counted on to have a productive season. He was pretty productive last year, but was a bit overshadowed by the other star linebackers.

Troy adds 3-star linebacker to fall class

July 28, 2010
By Drew Champlin

Troy has added one last piece of the puzzle to its 2010 class.

Mark Wilson Jr., a linebacker from Tallahassee, Fla., was a late qualifier and will play at Troy. Wilson, who prepped at Lincoln High, was a teammate of current Trojan linebacker Xavier Lamb in high school.

Wilson said he is 6-foot-1 and 230 pounds and will report Friday. The rivals.com and scout.com 3-star recruit will start out at the weakside linebacker spot, but could also play in the middle.

Wilson signed with Illinois in February, but qualified with a 19 on his ACT.

RE: INside The Walls of Troy
Troy's Clark switches position, number

The Associated Press • July 30, 2010

TROY — Troy offensive lineman Tyler Clark will open Troy's season with a new position and a new number.

The Troy offensive lineman moves from left guard to center for his senior season. Clark will wear No. 54 in the Sept. 4 opener against Bowling Green in honor of a close friend who died in the spring.

RE: INside The Walls of Troy
The players: Defensive back

August 01, 2010
By Drew Champlin

What you’ve all been waiting for. We’ll look at guys on scholarship and see where they stand this year. If there’s a guy missing, please let me know

SENIORS

***Willard Ross is expected to be the starter at free safety and should be productive. He started twice last year (ULL, GMAC Bowl).

***Barry Valcin enters as the starter at strong safety, which he played a little bit at the end of last year after starting most of the year at corner. Two things of note: (1) He should get another year of eligibility after this season for a medical redshirt in JUCO and (2) Jeremy Rowell absolutely loves him as a safety

***Bryant McKissic has looked good when healthy and when he’s had chances. Unfortunately, that hasn’t been much over his career, but he’s back from missing the spring with shoulder surgery. Outside chance he’ll start - as he did in the GMAC Bowl and had an interception - but he’s probably Valcin’s backup.

***Sam Sellers seems like he’s been here forever, but he’ll be a guy on special teams and a backup at nickel.
