The former Gryphon All-State standout football player graciously agreed to blog on my blog.
Yes, the redshirt-sophomore offensive lineman for the Wake Forest Demon Deacons will be sharing his thoughts and observations with the world as Wake prepares for the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl at Nashville, Tennessee's LP Field on Friday. WFU will be facing Mississippi State on ESPN at 6:40 p.m.
Whit and his teammates left N.C. Tuesday afternoon and about 15 members of his family will be making the trip down I-40 to watch the Deacs play.
So with his first entry, hereeeee's Whit!
The Barnes Report
Tuesday morning was rough with a cold and rainy morning practice.
But after we got some Chick-Fil-A into us, we jumped on the bus to go to Greensboro. Once we arrived at the Piedmont Triad International Airport, we loaded up a 250-passenger charter plane with players, coaches and boosters to head to Nashville.
We arrived at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel with a great greeting from the WFU fans who were already there. Then we had a team meeting shortly after.
When that was over, we went to dinner on a riverboat based on the Cumberland River and had a rib-eating contest and a rock band contest with Mississippi State. It was very entertaining. Plus, we ended up winning, so that made it much better.
After that we had some free time to go check out downtown Nashville and listened to some good live country music.
