An End Justifies His Means

For Arkansas State's Jerry Mack, there is no such thing as a free ride

Last week Arkansas State played its first conference game of the season, against Southwestern Louisiana. The team was 2-2, and in those early games—including a one-point loss to then-undefeated Kansas—Mack had caught four passes and scored two touchdowns, giving him 23 career receptions, eight for touchdowns. Mack didn't score or catch a pass against Southwestern Louisiana, but his blocking helped Indian runners gain 224 yards in a 14-3 win.

Mack was asked, "Were you disappointed not to score a touchdown today?"

"No," he said. "I had a great game blocking. And we won, didn't we?" That, after all, is what college football is supposed to be about.
