S.F.A.'s Pervis returns from injury

By Ryan Peterson

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - No football players likes two a day practices.  There is one S.F.A. Lumberjack happy to hit the practice field.  The Jacks had big plans for running back Vincent Pervis last season, but they were short lived.

An All-Soutland Conference selection in 2006, leading the conference in kick return average, Pervis blew out his knee in the first game last season.   Pervis rehabbed all year and was cleared in May.

"I had to sit by and watch a pretty bad season from the sidelines," Pervis says.  "So I'm pretty anxious to get back out there. It's been the longest, hardest 11 months of my life."

He says his speed is back and he's ready to make up for lost time.

"Last year he was looking to have a great year and without any contact hurt his knee," S.F.A. coach J.C. Harper says.  "So he's worked really hard to get back in shape."
