South Alabama has added more talent to their team with a new transfer from the Alabama Crimson Tide. The Jaguars have added former 4 star recruit Danny Woodson, who will be eligible to play for USA this season.
“When I got the phone call from [USA Assistant Athletic Director] Daniel McCarthy, he said he was going to make my day; I told him if it’s the news I hope it is, it’s going to make my year,” said USA head coach Joey Jones. ”We got really good news about Danny. He’s a great football player and a great young man, we’re tickled to death that he is going to be with us this fall. Danny can make a big difference in our offensive production.”
Woodson was rated as the 25th receiver coming out of high school in 2011 and he will have three years of eligibility left after red shirting his freshman year for the Tide.

Miami Dolphins TE Dustin Keller is done for the year, thanks to a low hit by Texans rookie safety D.J Swearinger. When asked about the low hit here’s what the rookie had to say:
“I was making a hit playing football,” Swearinger told the Palm Beach Post. “In this league you’ve got to go low. If you go high you’re going to get a fine.”
“The rules say you can’t hit high so I went low and I’m sorry that happened,” Swearinger told the Palm Beach Post. “I would think you’d rather have more concussions than leg injuries. Leg injury, you can’t come back from that. A concussion, you be back in a couple of weeks.
I guess wrapping a player up isn’t tackling anymore right? I get it, Swearinger feels another player losing his career is more important than him losing some money. However, the defensive players are in a no win situation in the NFL and these types of injuries may just be the beginning of what’s to come.
Dustin Keller who was on a one-year contract now has a torn ACL, MCL, PCL and dislocated his knee.
Notre Dame running back Cam McDaniel got his bell rung in football practice. The RB was doing drills and tried to run through the gauntlet machine that happened to be turned backwards. The way he ran into the machine looked exactly like the Fighting Irish trying to run against Alabama in the national championship last year.
