College recruiters have an eye on Cole Lail

GoVolsXtra.com says a high school football player to watch next year in college recruiting is Cole Lail of William Blount High School.

One to watch for next year at this time could be William Blount's 6-1, 220-pound linebacker Cole Lail.

He participated last Friday in the U.S. Army National Combine in San Antonio. The combine for 500 of the nation's top juniors coincided with the Army All-American Game for seniors. Lail was tested in the 40-yard dash, a 20-yard shuttle run, his vertical jump and 185-pound bench-press repetitions.

Hello from Seattle!

Email received overnight from John Lail:

Just saw this on the net and thought, since I am a card carrying member of the Lail extended family, I might as well introduce myself and see what comes of it. So, hello fellow Lails from Seattle.

Tasty news

While these postings are usually about people with the surname of Lail or in the extended Lail family, every once in awhile Google delivers up someone with the first name of Lail. I think I have seen it twice as a woman's first name.

Today, my inbox had a link to a nice feature on Lail Hess and her Juniper Spoon catering business in Darlington, Ind. She specializes in organic, locally grown vegetables and healthy meals. On the business' Web site, it's called "hand-crafted" food. In addition to standard catering, she has a dinner deliver service.

If I'm ever in Darlington ...
