03/16/2010 - Spring practice opened Monday for ULM, and while players grew more accustomed to new head coach Todd Berry and his staff, former players were meeting with old acquaintances in the stands. Several seniors from last season's 6-6 team returned to the Monroe area Monday to prepare for this morning's Pro Day at Malone Stadium. NFL scouts from the New Orleans Saints, the Houston Texans and the Jacksonville Jaguars, to name a few, will be in attendance to see some of the best athletes to come through the ULM program. Former Pro Bowl player and now defensive tackles coach Leon Lett is in charge of organizing the day, along with strength and conditioning coach John Grieco. "It's a great opportunity for me to share my story and my one shot to get to the NFL," said Lett, who spent most of his career with the Dallas Cowboys. "My story, I just wanted to reiterate to them, it was tough that one day, but just relax, be yourself and everything will work out for them. Everything else will take care of itself." Four schools within the area are hosting Pro Day today for their respective athletes, but scouts are making time to stop at ULM to see high profile players like the conference defensive player of the year Cardia Jackson, the country's interception leader Greg James and defensive end Aaron Morgan, who finished as the Sun Belt's sack leader for a single season and in a career. "There's no tension," Morgan said. "I've been training for eight weeks for one day ??? to prove to the world what you've being doing. The only thing left to do is shock the world." Morgan has spent the past two months in Cincinnati, Ohio, training at Ignition, a training facility, and showed off his improved strengths on the turf at Malone Stadium, prior to ULM's practice. - Tabby Soignier, The News Star
