Senior Starting Quarterback Erik Ainge admits he’s bigger and stronger in ’07, and healthy and ready to go after Knee Surgery this Spring.
It’ll take a lot for Ainge to surpass his 2006 stats … almost 3-Thousand Yards Passing and 19-Touchdowns … his 66-point-9 percent passing accuracy on the field was the best for a single-season, in school history.
The Coaches of the SEC have put him enough stock in Mr. Ainge to put him on their on PreSeason Top-Performers list, an honor that’s much-deserved.
