Yep, in the final episode of Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Houston Texans on HBO, Lloyd puts her kicking talents to the test against the 325-pound defensive tackle. Now, I should probably add that the “familiar face” statement is only applicable to those individuals who watched the HBO series Hard Knocks this season. Last week’s show had players crying as they learned from coach Bill O’Brien they would not be staying with the team.
Likewise for cornerback Charles James II.
However, the good news for James, Nwachukwu and linebacker Kourtnei Brown is that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
With all due respect to Kyle Federico, Rutgers coach Kyle Flood might want to check with former Scarlet Knights star women’s soccer player Carli Lloyd to see if she has any eligibility remaining. James joined the Baltimore Ravens, E.Z. signed on with the Miami Dolphins and Brown landed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The competition ended in a draw as both made kicks from 25 and 35 yards.
“You can tell me to go screw myself”, he yelled back to the sideline.
Overall, this was a solid season of “Hard Knocks“. Watt talked of their mutual admiration for that meal that falls between breakfast and lunch, and Wilfork mentioned something his wife, Bianca, makes called “sunk bread” that features bacon, egg, sausage and ham.
The praise was peppered with expletives, and O’Brien had some remorse there.
The early days were the most hard, O’Brien said.
