Mayock's biggest day and other links

Most of us have watched ESPN's Draft coverage, but don't forget the NFL Network's broadcast. The star of that show is BC's own Mike Mayock. Mayock has spread his wings a bit with game coverage, but he is really at home as a talent evaluator.

Local papers in Illinois are loving the Costanzo story.

Chris Hovan's first post NFL job will be coaching high school football in Florida.

Another Herzy interview.

Thomas Claiborne once seemed like a definite draftee. An inconsistent season combined with some squabaling with the coaches made him much less desirable. Put he still has potential, as you can see from this workout.

Softball's season has been a bit of a letdown. However they have set the school record for HRs in a season.

Chicks dig the long ball.

Surprised to see how quick, balanced, and low Clairborne is, particularly on the start-stop cone drills. Shades of Beeks. There is a lot of good material there to be a road gradder than can pull.

Herzy is quite polished and likable. Can definitely see him in the booth or (even better) at the home desk after his career is done.

On a completely different subject, some BC hockey fans may have missed that Joe Whitney and John Muse signed amateur tryout deals with the AHL Portland Pirates in early April. Portland is the farm team for Buffalo. Brian Gibbons signed a similar deal with Chicago's AHL team at Rockford.
