Virginia offensive tackle Eric Smith (@wahoo_young) received a call on Wednesday morning from the Reese’s @SeniorBowl and is now “Mobile Bound!” The @SeniorBowl lost a few offensive linemen this week during practice making way for Smith’s invite, who gives UVA a representative in the @SeniorBowl for the ninth-straight season. Smith will be on the South team. The game is on Saturday (Jan. 28) and will be televised on the NFL Network with a 2:30 p.m. ET kick time.
2015 Heisman Trophy winner and current running back for the Tennessee Titans, Derrick Henry, gave a tweet-out to current #UVAFB running back and early enrollee, Jamari Peacock. Both Henry and Peacock hail from Yulee, Fla., and both were running backs at Yulee High School. Henry graduated from Yulee High School in 2013, while Peacock enrolled the following fall replacing Henry’s class.
