Kickin' it with the Blue Raiders
Erturk and Sikes featured week sixSeptember 21, 2011 · Athletic Communications

Each of the 25 players will be included with most weeks profiling two student-athletes and three weeks highlighting three players. Student-athletes were selected by random draw for their respective week.
