On this week’s podcast, you'll meet Gardner Webb RT/RG Steve Demilio. A class act on and off the field, Steve has stayed after his dream despite injuries and being told in some unusual ways in high school to give up on football. After you get to know him off the field, get to know him on the field by watching his highlight film. Then, hope your team takes a chance on him this spring.

Also check out our bonus article this week, an interview with Stony Brook safety Dominick Reyes, who at 6'4", 220 lbs, could have NFL receivers thinking twice about going across the middle next year.
