To say folks around these parts are proud of Danny Woodhead is a HUGE understatement. The soft-spoken, incredibly polite, superbly talented running back from North Platte that graced the Chadron State College Eagles football team for the past four years - and that holds the NCAA all-Division career rushing record - signed a free-agent contract with the New York Jets immediately following the 2008 NFL draft yesterday. Kudos to Jets coach Eric Mangini for giving our Eagle the opportunity to soar with the big boys in New York.
Congratulations, Danny! No one deserves this chance more than you. Give it your best shot; I know you'll make us proud!
See, little ones, you CAN make your dreams come true if you just believe in yourself!
