QUOTE TO NOTE: "I went to junior college when I was a freshman with my head down, just basically saying, 'I've got to go in there and take somebody's spot. I've got to earn a job. I've got to be on the field. I'm not here to make friends.' I think that type of mentality, it carried me to where I am now. I went to Southern Miss with just the same mentality and I've just got to keep doing it." -- Lamar Holmes, Falcons third-rounder on the mentality needed to earn a starting position. - The Sports Xchange
