Bitburg-ex Edgar rolling on in Arkansas

The family of Kyle Edgar, the Bitburg running back who last year averaged 10.8 yards-per-carry in rushing for 1,242 yards and 20 touchdowns and made the All-Europe team for the second straight season, emailed last week to provide a link to a story on Edgar which appeared in the Arkansas Leader newspaper. You can read the article at this link http://arkansasleader.blogspot.de/2012/08/sports-storypanther-transfer-good-fit.html.

This season, Edgar’s wearing the colors of Cabot (Ark.) High School, which plays in Class 7A. Anyone who’d like to keep up with Edgar’s accomplishments can visit his website, www.kyleedgar.com.
