Dustin Fry has patiently waited for his turn to see the field. Unfortunately, a nagging hamstring injury has limited Fry in practice. Friday morning Fry discussed his injury following practice.


"It has just been one of them nagging injuries, all summer pretty much. I kind of hurt it first session of summer. I would rest it, and it just kind of flared up on me a little bit. It is just one of those frustrating things. I want to get out there so bad, but you are not suppose to rush it at all. I am not injured, I am just hurt."


Fry is heavily motivated to start the season opener against Texas A&M. Fry has been one of the hardest workers on the team, while learning and playing behind Tommy Sharpe.


"I had that long wait. It has been three years that I have been waiting to start. Now, I have this stupid hamstring right now. It is just frustrating, seeing the offensive line not gelling without me and (Nathan) Bennett. It feels good to be named the starter, but when I am not out there practice, it feels like I am watching Tommy Sharpe snap the ball again."


Head coach Tommy Bowden and offensive line coach Brad Scott have been very careful with Fry. Fry has been participating in a yellow jersey (no contact). Coach Bowden stated on Thursday, he felt Fry probably could have played, if it was a gameday. Friday morning, Fry echoed those sentiments.


"If today was September 3rd, I would have made myself play. I would have definitely made myself play."


To his credit, Fry has stayed very positive. Even though, he has been limited, Fry is setting an example for his teammates. He is obviously frustrated, but he is still all smiles in an interview, and he is waiting his turn once again.
