Scruggs Ready to Put Spring Behind Him

“The Pit” is a place where no one wants to be. It’s a three-letter word that no University of Louisville football wants to hear that they are headed to when practice starts. What looks like Muscle Beach or maybe something more of a prison yard, “The Pit” is basically an outdoor weight room equipped a bench press station, pushing a stair master with your hands, medicine balls and dumbbells. It’s every injured player’s nightmare.

For senior Greg Scruggs, it’s a place that gives him the shakes every time he thinks of it. The 6-4, 280-pound defensive lineman had surgery on his groin that caused him to miss the entire spring, which is hard for a player with Scruggs’ passion and work ethic. Scruggs was stuck in there from the start of spring until end, but it’s something that made him bigger and stronger.
