Questions answered as spring ball concludes

Harrell sees roster rounding into form heading to summer
Spring football is all about coaches figuring out just exactly what they’ve got to work with.
Not to say every position is set in stone after the Lions concluded their spring work on Thursday, but coach Sam Harrell had an answer to questions regarding every position. Heading into the summer, Lion football has a plan for the 2009 campaign.

Offensive line
As far as Harrell is concerned, the O-line was one of the key areas of uncertainty entering the spring. While the coaches didn’t find as much quality depth as they’d hoped for, there are seven Lions in the picture.
“We knew Zane Davis, Byron Betik and Chase Farmer were solid guys we could count on,” Harrell said.
“Through the spring, Austin Armstrong and Hugh Emmert really came on to give us five we felt good about. Cedrick Freeman and Thomas Carter have gotten some snaps on offense to give us some backup depth and should be able to help a little bit.”
While Carter figures to be a mainstay on the defensive line, Freeman is the clear sixth option on the O-line even though he will see some time up front on defense with Carter.
