The Elizabethtown News Enterprise had an interview with Andre Woodson in Sunday's paper (he's from just up the road in Radcliff).
I looked for a link online today... but no such luck.
More after the jump ...
The gist of it is that Woodson is back in camp with the Giants competing for a roster spot. Essentially he is competing for the 3rd string spot with Rhett Bomar who was drafted by the Giants this year out of Sam Houston State. Those of you who follow college football may remember Bomar from a brief stint at Oklahoma before he got in some trouble with the law and had to skip town a few years ago.
Last year, Woodson stepped into a competition which included former number 1 overall pick David Carr, Anthony Wright, and former UK QB Jared Lorenzen. It didn't go well for the former Cats, Woodson ended up on the practice squad and Lorenzen is now the starting QB for the Lexington AFL team IIRC.
There were some good comments from Woodson in the article, he says he has dropped 20 pounds from his frame and now feels lighter on his feet and more mobile. He also says they have worked with him to entirely rework his throwing motion and he now no longer has that odd "hitch" that caused him to slip so far in the draft. He also feels like he has a much better grasp of the Giants' playbook now and is more equipped to succeed. The article then pointed out the progression he made at North Hardin from serviceable QB to D1 prospect and then at UK from near bust to Heisman contender.
It was a nice write up. If I can find a link online somewhere I'll try to add it later. [UPDATE: The article is here.]
