Dave Reardon has a few bits of info on Davone Bess.
The former Warriors slotback just arrived in Indianapolis for the combine. Said he thinks his medical stuff will be done today, then interviews tomorrow.

“I’m hearing second, third round,” Bess said in a phone interview from Indy. “But you never know.”
Maybe a full article tomorrow? Also, Dave points out Dan Kelly's Relay for Life page, where you can donate money to the American Cancer Society. And I also gotta mention Jason of the Tsaikos Relay for Life page as well -- he's a cool guy and has almost reached his goal. Donate to both!

And finally, Dave writes about this week's Super Games competition, Warrior Ball, which is...
… Hawaiian style football played with a volleyball.

For those unfamiliar with Hawaiian style football, you basically can throw the ball in any direction you want, to any teammate. Anyone growing up here played it at the beach, in the park and at recess.

In today’s format, it was touch, no blocking, and four downs (no first down markers) on a 50-yard field.
More details in that post. Getting competitive!
