Default Texans' Bennett not forgetting where he came from

Quote:
MANNING -- To all those who jump to their feet and cheer as the Texans' No. 32 takes the field, the 24-year-old former Manning High School and University of South Carolina star says, "Thank you."

To all the "naysayers" who didn't think he'd make it in professional football, the starting cornerback for the Houston Texans says, "Let's play some ball."

Chosen in the fourth round of the 2007 National Football League Draft, the 123rd pick overall, Fred Bennett signed with the Houston Texans on July 26, 2007.

"It took a lot of hard work," Bennett said while sitting in his mother's living room recently. "When I first got there and saw those guys, I said to myself 'I've got to work hard.' I started as the fourth-string corner. I had no idea that I'd work my way to the top. Then I was third string, second string and then in there with first."

"Now, therefore be it resolved that the date of Jan. 28, 2008, is hereby set aside to be observed as Fred Bennett Day," Johnson announced to Bennett at Manning City Council's January meeting. "We're proud of you, your accomplishments and the fact that you haven't forgotten your home town."

No kidding! What a find they came up with getting Fred in the 4th. How many clubs would love to have a quality starter at CB in the 4th.

Thank you Fred for being a Houston Texan!!!

Can we clone Fred?

Or better yet, combine Fred and Dunta's DNA in a clone?

Default Re: Texans' Bennett not forgetting where he came from

i think bennett is the real deal and the fact that he's a 4th rd pick convinces me that a rb should be taken in the 1st (j-stew) and db in the 3rd. sorry, this is a bennett thread, it's great to see that he's proved a lot of people wrong and made a lot of people proud.

Since both came from the same program (University of South Carolina), it wouldn't be surprising if Dunta wasn't a little birdie on Rick Smith's and Kubiak's shoulder.

Let us not forget that the Big Bossman, Mr. McNair, is also a Gamecock.

McNair is an albatross on the shoulder of Kubes and Smith.

Knew that Dunta came from the same Uni, but not that McNair went there also.

Forget about the Denver connection, I see the University of South Carolina connection clearly now!

How about just a SEC connection. Just draft southern boys from the SEC or D lineman from NC.
