Jeff Schoettmer: Walk-on to starter?

It was the middle of practice on the third day of North Carolina’s training camp when linebackers coach Ron West told Jeff Schoettmer, “OK, you’re with the 1s.” With that, a walk-on from Dallas became the favorite to start at inside linebacker. “I couldn’t think about it much because I was in the middle of practice,” Schoettmer said. “I couldn’t diagnose ‘I’m with the 1s.’ I just had to go play, really.” (Durham Herald-Sun)
