Taking a quick break from the A-to-Z series, I was able to catch up with a few of  Georgia State’s football players earlier this week.

So, I thought I’d start to post them here. Pretty smart, huh?

Let’s start with running back Kendrick Dorn.

As I was waiting on the players on Tuesday, I looked outside and there was Dorn, holding a medicine ball on his chest. He then jumped into the air and pushed/threw the heavy ball up into the air as far as he could. It almost reached the roof of the practice facility. I have no idea how he would have gotten it back had it made it onto the roof, but that’s not important.

Why was he doing this?

Dorn, a running back, sustained a knee issue last year that prevented him from playing.

How is his knee?

Q: How is the rehab going? How close are you to being participate in contact drills?

A: I’m ready, 100 percent. Everything’s been going good. The last month has been good for me, going back home, speaking with my physical therapist back home. Everything is going well.

Q: Mentally, how tough has it been to sit out?

A: It’s been tough. I haven’t played, sitting out a year. It’s been really tough. I’ve had my ups and downs but had my family and teammates to push me through the whole thing. It’s been tough, but now it’s the easy part with getting back to football stuff.

Q: You’ve been cleared for football stuff?

A: Yes.

Q: It’s a deep, deep group going into August with six-sevven guys competing for snaps. How do you set yourself apart?

A: All you have to do, all I’m doing, is being the best player I can be. Be the best vocal leader I can be. Trying to lead by example. I know everything will show, everything will come out the way it’s supposed to be.

Q: Who has caught your eye in the workouts?

A: (Darius) Stubbs.

Q: What’s good about him?

A: He works hard. He came in bigger than most of us. You could tell that he’s been in the weight room.
