Skipper….happy for him

Look at the videos below the coach speaking for Dan’s video. There is also a nice locker room video but I can’t get it to load.

Won’t play on my iPad. I assume Coach called out Skipper?

Here you go, A study in persistence.

Skipper, who was on the practice squad to start the year, and played OT for the Lions in the pre-season, was on the active roster and either started or played a bunch at OG, and the HC recognized him for doing " a helluva job".

It’s a really positive career development for Skipper, who has been on and off a lot of practice squads and has not seen much game action in the regular season since he left Arkansas.
