#93 Roy Philon
Class: RS Senior
Position: Defensive Tackle
Hometown: Lexington, KY
Louisville’s Take: Still waiting…Somebody get me Paul Rogers on the phone
Thoughts: Roy had a solid 2012, seeing action in all thirteen games and getting the nod to start seven of them, including the last five. While avoiding severe injuries, Roy has been banged up while at Louisville including a knee injury, a back injury and now a nagging injury that kept him out of the spring game. While his laid back personality may not be overwhelming, his play certainly has improved since he arrived, including 27 tackles and a couple sacks last year alone. You probably won’t get any newspaper quotes from Roy, or see him yapping on Twiiter for that matter, but his progression over the last few seasons should warrant him a starting spot on the line if he can remain healthy. A lot has changed since Roy walked on campus, and hopefully we've got a special season in store to send him out in style.
Not a tweeter, but he sure can annoy those hometown puddy tats. (Yes, I just used a Tweety Bird reference seven days into the countdown, brace yourselves people, could be a long summer)
