“I stayed pretty busy this summer,” Will Lowery said from his home in Hoover, (Ala). “I went to the Spain Park combine and the ScoutSouth.com combine in Hoover. I think I did all right at both."
“I also went to camp at Wake Forest, Samford and Alabama this summer.”
Lowery tells ScoutSouth.com about his experience at each camp.
“I went the Wake Forest camp not knowing what to expect. My Dad and I just drove up there, and it turned out pretty good,” Lowery recalled. “I think I did pretty well.”
“Wake has good academics, which is important to me, and they have a good football program as well.”
“When we were going through the drills they kept pulling a few guys aside and working us by ourselves. I really didn’t know what was going on, but I thought I was doing well. The coaches told me I was one of the top five defensive backs at camp, so it went well for me."
“I went to Samford, but I didn’t have my best day there. We had a tough week of practice before I went, and I was sore and pretty banged up.”
“I liked Samford. They have a nice campus, and I liked the coaches there."
“I went to Alabama’s camp last. I went for the experience and because it was Alabama. I really didn’t expect to do as well as I did."
“Coach Saban complimented me several times when we were doing db drills, and during one-on-one. He asked me where I was from, and later some of the Hoover guys on the Alabama team were telling me he (Coach Saban) had told them I had a good day at camp and that he really liked my foot work."
Our conversation turned to the upcoming season and Lowery gave us his insight into the Hoover Bucs mind-set for this season.
“We feel like we’re being over looked, or brushed off. A lot of people don’t think we’ll be as good as we’ve been over the past few years, but I couldn’t disagree more;” Lowery emphatically stated.
“We’re looking forward to the season, and the opportunity to prove everyone wrong. We like being in this position because we feel we have something to prove to everybody."
