Chase Clement update

Jarett Dillard will report on Thursday for his second NFL training camp (check back to the R Blog for an interview), but here's a link to a story off the UFL web site about Dillard's triggerman during their glory days at Rice Stadium, Chase Clement:  Locos QB's Rattay, Clement Share UFL Team, NCAA History

Clement began what he believed was the start of his coaching career earlier this year when he  was named Offensive Quality Control Assistant under David Bailiff. But even as he dove headlong into his duties, it became obvious that he desired a better ending to his football career than his abortive time in the training camp of the Hamilton Tiger Cats of the CFL last summer.

When offered the chance to play under quarterback guru Jim Fassel at Las Vegas of the new Unight Football League, Clement found a willing and understanding supporter in his employer, David Bailiff.

"I knew that Chase wasn't happy with the way things turned out last summer, and I was happy to know he was going to get a chance like this.  I wished him well and told him I hoped I wouldn't see him for a long time, but he has a place here at Rice whenever his playing career comes to an end," Bailiff said.

Chuck, we look forward to your post with Jarret. And good luck to Chase. He has got to try while he still can.

A football team question for you. Do you happen to know why Alex Lowry is no longer listed with the team on the roster?

Russell: Alex did not participate in summer activities and has informed Coach Bailiff that he intends to transfer to another school. The coaching staff is working on the assumption that his status will not change and they are proceeding with plans for training camp without him.
