Two-a-days is a time when it’s a little easier to gain perspective on who might be important during the upcoming season, especially in terms of newcomers.
I bring up the point because I am quickly starting to wonder if Matthew Dash might be a more important addition than we thought when he showed up in the offseason.
There will be a story in tomorrow’s paper about Dash and his interesting journey to becoming a player on the Football Bowl Subdivision. Dash has come a long way to get to UNT.
Most people will remember Dash. He came to UNT from a Cali JC and signed late.
With Zed Evans done due to injury and Freddie Warner still trying to get healthy, Dash is all but assured of playing. He’s competing with Sheldon Wade for a starting job.
Just something to think about and a good reason to pick up the paper in the morning/check out the story on our website later.
And while we are at it, the entries in the annual picks contest continue to roll in. Remember, to Get Your Rear on the Record, e-mail me at email@example.com.
