It was a day to remember for those participating in the Senior Bowl. The National Football scouting weigh-in took place early this morning, which for the athletes meant, bearing a little more than usual.
“It was good, it was cool, I’ve never done anything like that before, it was a big crowd, it was cool,” said Mobile-native, Auburn fullback Jay Prosch.
For some players, like Auburn defense end, Dee Ford, this morning was a turning point to pro football.
“It sunk in when I walked through that meat market, I’m used to eyes being on me,” said Ford, jokingly.
“I can see Dee Ford feeling that way though because that’s like what he does, he eat cleans, works out every day like three time a day,” said Porsch of his teammate.
“I know, they said strip down, I was the first one. Like I said, this is an amazing experience,” said Ford.
For Mobile-native’s Solomon Patten and Jimmie Ward – the weigh-in was a little different as well.
“Oh it was pretty weird because there’s so many people out there, it’s a good experience,” said Patten.
“It’s very exciting, but there are some things that you have to do when you participate in the senior bowl,” said Ward.
