I am sure you have all seen the excel calendar that comes out every year, in fact I look forward to it towards the end of each summer. However, this afternoon I was made aware of something even better. Have a look...

Schedule maker

#14 Lonta Hobbs

After being named offensive MVP as a freshman, first team C-USA, C-USA freshman of the year and becoming the first freshman in TCU history to rush for 1,000 yards Lonta fought through a host of injuries to end his career as the fourth all-time leading rusher and second all-time in career touchdowns.

Up next: A high school QB who came to TCU and became an all-American at a different position.

Highlights From Day 1

-Frogs battle through the 105 degree heat. "I thought it went good," Patterson said. "It was hot, but it wasn't hot enough. A lot of kids fought through it, I thought we finished well, the kids were still running at the end and that's what we want. They'll be better tomorrow. I thought we started a little slow this afternoon but we picked it up toward the end."

-Patterson coins "Draw The Line" as the team slogan for this season. "It could be blue-collar, it could be we’re setting an expectation level very high," Patterson said. "We’re drawing our own line, we’re not waiting for people. You can take it from the old Western movies. But if the way they conditioned and ran and got stronger in the summer time is any indication, I’d say this team is ready to go do that."

-Joseph Turner's knee appears well. Joseph got up the nerve to take a hard cut on his repaired knee and didn't have any problems. Coach Patterson said "he has a way to go to be full speed, but it was good to see him".

-Henson and Washington battle for the second line backing spot. Patterson explains,"Washington and Henson are 1/1, Henson missed the month of June, we do things on merit around here and that's why Washington is with the one's, because he was here all summer. And Robert knows that, Robert knows he has a chance to be number one, the key to it is he's got to get something going."

-New additions to the receiving core. Several eyes were on the newcomers at wide receiver(Alonzo Adams and Antoine Hicks) who both performed well in individual and skeleton drills.

-Defensive lineman Jeremy Coleman impresses. The 6-foot-3. 270-pounder practiced with the defensive tackles and looks like a player that has the potential to make a contribution early in his career. One of the obvious attributes that standout are his explosiveness and speed to the ball.
-Redshirt Freshman Jai Cavness impresses Turner. "He knows the plays, he doesn't complain, he doesn't take any breaks. He was the best back out there today", said Turner.
