Now A Colorado Alum

I just got back from the Colorado Spring Game last weekend and it was good to get out there and watch the whole team and see the new guys play. I have to say they looked pretty good. I twas funny to see the future from a different perspective. I guess I'm an alumni now.

It was different not being able to go in there and get ready to kick a field goal. But it was just awesome that I was honored while I was up there. Now my name will always be up in the stadium. It's kind of cool to know you'll always have your name in the stadium some where. I'm just really blessed to have had the opportunity. It showed all the hard work I put into it my career at Colorado and I guess it officially marked the end of my college career.

I'm still just kicking for right now and working out. I'm trying to spend as much time with my family and friends as I can because it's about to get crazy. I find out where I'm headed to next week and then I'm off and gone for a while, not sure when I'll get a chance to be with them again. I continue to stay focused but I'm having fun and enjoying the process. I'm excited about this and definitely not worrying about it.

The last couple of weeks I've been talking to a lot of teams. I talked to a few guys who wanted to make sure I was still healthy and getting my draft day numbers. It's really been a fun process so far.

With the draft next weekend, next week is probably going to be crazy.

Mason Crosby Mason Crosby
Considered one of the nation's premier kickers, the former Colorado Buffalo is known for his big leg and supreme accuracy. His 60-yard field goal is a Colorado record and holds the NCAA record for the longest field goal without a tee (58 yards at Miami). He's Colorado's all-time leading scorer.

Crosby's hobbies range from hunting, fishing, hiking and basketball to golf where he's the proud owner of a single-digit handicap. And he was born to be an athlete. His father was a fullback at Texas-El Paso in the 70s and his grandfather ran track at Marshall.
