GW shone this past season hitting in 56 consecutive games.

GW's competitors for the award include: Blake Geoffrion (Wisconsin hockey), Mark Ingram (Alabama football), John Wall (Kentucky hoops) and Evan Turner (Ohio State hoops).

blkpanther: Pete, i know Rupert had surgery, is he back at 100% and what is his weight looking like?

PP: Rupert is expected to be ready for training camp in August. He's recovering nicely from surgery and he's around 275-280 right now.

Gold: Can this new player play right away?

PP: Yes sir. Caylin has the ability and tools to be the team's starting left tackle on 9/11. MC and his staff have made it a priority to address both lines this offseason with the additions of White, Delsoin, Faciane, Lee, Davis, Fitch and Senat.

FIUJM: Pete, glad you'll hit us up during football season. We'll have gallopinto, tortilla caliente and carne asada for you.

PP: Love the Nica food. When I'm down in Miami I try to hit Los Ranchos and the fritangas.

What's the biggest hurdle to GW going home with an ESPY?
