Rogers Talks Junior Day, Camp Plans
Chandler Rogers profile "I went over to junior day at Mississippi State," said Rogers. "It went really well. We got to watch them practice and then we got to sit in a meeting with Coach Koenning to learn more about how the offense runs." In addition to seeing the Bulldog players and coaches in action, Chandler got to take the behind the scenes tour. "We got to tour the weight room, the locker room, the academic center and all of that," said Rogers. "Everything was really nice." Before heading home, Chandler got the chance to get a quick five minute evaluation from Mississippi State offensive coordinator Les Koenning. "I talked to Coach Koenning before I left," said Rogers. "He gave me some real positive feedback. He said the offense we run in high school is similar to what they run there. He said I would be a good fit for them. He said that they have seen on me tape and that he wants to see me in person and in camp. That was encouraging." With some renewed optimism and hope for the future, Chandler returned home with a healthy respect for the talent level of the players in the SEC. "The speed of the game and the players are five times as fast as it is in high school," said Rogers. "There are a lot of things I know I have to work on to handle that sort of speed. "I am working just about everyday to fine tune my mechanics and my footwork. I want to get it all handled before I go to all of these camps and combines. I want it to all be natural for me by then." The summer camps will be here sooner rather than later and the talented signal caller is beginning to put together a wish list of camping destinations. "I am hearing a lot from Mississippi State, Southern Miss, Illinois and Stephen F. Austin," said Rogers. "I know for sure I am going to Mississippi State and Southern Miss. I have been getting some mail from LSU, so I am going there. I am looking at UAB, Southeastern and Stephen F. Austin. I may go to Tennessee too. I will just have to see who all I hear from between now and then."
