    First of a few watchlists for Burkhead. Hopefully he gets to take some hardware home after the season.

    Rex keeps making us proud.
    If you continue to have your practices open to the public, don’t be surprised if they show up. All of them.

    Greatness is made in empty stadiums, but it’s revealed in full stadiums.
