How did his

Billy. "I was expecting it to be like a combine, where you run the 40 and

Autrey learn about himself from the camp?
"I learned that my footwork
is pretty good. I finished first out of the centers in most of the latters and

"It boosted my confidence up pretty high. I also went
to the Army All-American combine and that gave me a boost."
Billy take away from this combine?
