Extra Points: Ready For The Wait

Ready For The Wait

Right now I've just been hanging out with some of my family and friends. I played golf today, trying to take my mind off the draft. I know that I've done everything I can do to be prepared and go as high as a I can and get on that team for next year.

I'm at ease right now. I'm sure I'll wake up tomorrow a little excited and anxious. But right now I'm trying not to think about it too much. There's really nothing I can do at this point.

I'm not trying to stay away from the draft at all. I like to listen to it and watch it. I'm so ready for it and excited about it. This weekend is going to be more relaxed than a lot of others. I've been working hard up until this point and working toward next season. This will be a little break and a chance to reboot for the next step.

All my friends in the draft that I've talked to are anxious and ready for this process to be over and know what's going to happen. If anyone else is nervous or feeling something else, they haven't been saying aything. I know a couple of guys that are a little anxious and excited. I feel like there's nothing to be nervous about.

At the beginning of this process, I didn't know how I'd feel this weekend. This whole spring has been a whirlwind. Now that it's here it's just like,"Wow. It's here. It's happening this weekend." All the stuff I've been doing, my mind wasn't necessarily on this moment, but now that it's here I'm just ready for it to happen. I'm confident.

Tomorrow I'll be pretty excited. I've watched the draft every year and tomorrow will be pretty different. I'll have all my family here. It's almost like we're having a family reunion-type thing and I'll have some of my friends here. We're just going to watch it, wait for that call that wants to pick me and have a good time. It's going to be a crazy waiting process, but I'll just try to keep my mind at ease and keep busy at times. It'll be a little frustrating and anxious at times, but I'm just trying to enjoy the moment. It's going to be a little while waiting so I'll settle in.

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.
