AUDIO - Owen Tolson only 24 hours from the NFL Combine
In less than 24 hours, Army Punter Owen Tolson will be in Indianapolis and
will be fully immersed in the NFL combine. From media interviews, to
interviews with NFL coaches and GMs, to mental tests, physical tests, and
position performance, Tolson will be taking part in something that, until now,
very few Army players have had the opportunity to do. Make no mistake
about it - the ability for Army players to get a shot at the NFL, as well as be
allowed to play in the NFL if drafted, is a very big, important step for the
Army Football Program.
Tolson is making the most of his opportunity. His preparation
physically and mentally started when the Army-Navy game ended, and has not
stopped since. He has played this scenario out in his head, and has
developed a solid maturity that should give him success at the combine.
Owen took some time to talk to us this evening about his preparation and
expectations going into the Combine. He gives a very frank and open
description of the process, letting Army Fans into a process that prior to now
was relatively foreign.
