Congrats - Joe Gibson!

Although it is somewhat belated, it is still deserving.

Joe Gibson, Jimoke during the 2008 season, successfully walked-on to the USC Football team for next season!

Gibson, now a wide receiver (No. 84), was a high school defensive back and trained since the Rose Bowl to earn a spot.

My highest praises of congratulations go out to him!

Nice job, Joe! And Good Luck!

One Week Remains

On Saturday, the 2009 Spring Football session will culminate with the Trojan Huddle. There are 20,000 expected at the Coliseum. Ben Malcolmson from USCRipsIt has a good preview of what you need to be aware of if you are expected to come.

With only two more "regular" practices left, I hope there are some of you who have a chance to come check out your Trojans for the last time until August.

Each practice is open to the public and we expect lots to be there!

And in other news....

With only a few practices left, that also means time is running out for the try-out period for the new Jimokes.

We look to get a good, new crew! And, once the crew is set, we will be sure to let everyone know!

Fight On!

Spring Ball UPDATE

Spring Football.

It is flying by at USC. It's nearing to the end; I just wish it was the season already, with the five stragith practices and Game Days at the Coliseum. Oh, what a life!

Today is our 10th of 15 Spring practices, culminating in an intrasquad Spring Game at the Coliseum next Saturday, April 25.

The COMPETITION is heating up and every position is struggling with depth chart rankings.

To get your blood flowing, here a few practice pics, courtesy of USCRipsIt. (Some of our Jimokes, others of USC Football)

5 Down, 10 To Go

We are already 1/3 done with Spring Ball for the 2009-10 season! I can't believe it! It has sure flown by.

The competition at every position is heating up, especially the defense. 

The QB Battle continues to wage on with Aaron Corp, Mitch Mustain, Matt Barkely, and Garrett Green battling for the job. It's fierce out there, and they are going at it every minute! 

Our new Jimokes (or Managers; they haven't been initiated to that name yet) are doing well and they are also competing every minute on the field. 

Looks like we will have a pretty good squad for next season!

And Adam Kossoff, our new head manager, is proving to provide effective leadership out there for everyone! Nice job!

AND, by the way. Be sure to come out to our practices! Of the remaining 10, 9 are open to the public! Today's is at 4. 

Fight On!
