Baton Rouge, LA-- Proving once again that it's never too early to talk college football, let's tell you about some preseason buzz for 2007 Blountstown grad Ryan Baker. Baker, a 6 foot 227 pound linebacker going into his senior season at LSU, he's #22 in the video here, is now on the Bednarik Award watch list. The Bednarik award goes to the best defensive player in college ball each year as voted by the Maxwell Club based in Philly.
Ryan 2nd on his team with 87 tackles last season, also racked up 7 sacks, and 11 tackles for loss. He has certainly lived up to the hype he had coming out of Blountstown a few years ago.
