Chants Look For Chance at the Pros
A group of Coastal Carolina football players who finished their eligibility last fall have been working out with strength coach Viktor Boyd in advance of the school’s pro day later this month. Coastal will host professional scouts on March 27th at 10 a.m.
Boyd has been working with corner Marrio Norman, offensive lineman Britt Leggett, defensive end Ron Washington, defensive lineman Ronnie Mason, linebacker D.J. Rice and tailback Jamie Fordham. Tailback Arthur Sitton and corner Whittmin Reese are also preparing for the event, though they are not working out with Boyd.
Norman, a 5-foot-11, 180 pounder, is perhaps the most intriguing player of the group. Blessed with great athleticism and ball skills, Norman was attracting the attention of scouts before he fractured his ankle in the fifth game of the 2008 season and missed the remainder of his final year. He has been cleared for full workouts and is starting to regain his form.
“He’s been training, but we’ve been taking it easy on the full-speed running,” Boyd said. “We’re really just trying to develop his [40-yard dash] technique.”
Reese, a 5-9, 190 pounder, could also leave an impression with scouts if he’s able to run well at the school’s pro day. He has been a contributor to Coastal’s track team during his career, running the 100 meters as fast as 10.81.
