#93 Roy Philon
Class: RS Junior Ht/Wt: 6-3/290 Position: Defensive Tackle Hometown: Lexington, KY
Louisville’s Take: Athletic defensive tackle who showed signs of being a dominant run stopper ... must continue to develop and be a force in the middle for the Cardinals... is one of the veterans on the defensive line... good athlete who continues to develop as a premier defensive tackle.
Thoughts: Roy had a solid year for the Cards last year. He was great at limiting the run up the middle finishing the season with 36 tackles. Look for him to keep a starting role and become a leader on the defensive side of the ball. I’d be surprised if Roy didn’t grab fifty tackles and 4-5 sacks this year. If I remember correctly I believe he had a couple sacks last year playing about 70 miles down the road in his hometown (cue dream sequence music)…
(Just for clarification, HCCS makes an appearance in all my dreams......as he should in yours. Step your dream game up people.)
