So you want to be a college football player

Freshman running back Reggie Gallaspy graduated high school early so he could enroll at NC State for the spring semester, and dude is not wasting any time getting himself adjusted to life in a major college football program. Via, here's a look at a typical day for Gallaspy:

5 a.m. Alarm goes off
5:30 a.m. Leave College Inn
5:40 a.m. Arrive at Murphy Center, get dressed
5:50 a.m. Head outside to run
6-7 a.m. Team run
7-8 a.m. Breakfast and treatment
8 a.m. Team meeting
8:45 a.m. Position meetings
9:30 a.m. Head back to College Inn
10 a.m. NAP TIME!!
11:30 a.m. Wake up, walk across campus to class
12:25-1:15 p.m. Class
1:15 p.m. Head to Case for tutoring/Grab lunch
2 p.m. Tutoring
3:35-5:25 p.m. Class
5:30-6:30 p.m. Back to College Inn, homework
6:30 p.m. Grab dinner
7-8 p.m. Tutoring
8 p.m. Back to College Inn, more homework
10:30 p.m. Lights out

I got tired just reading through that. My roommate in college had 8 a.m. classes five days a week one semester and I thought that was rough, but dang, that's nothing compared to what the guys on the football team deal with. I feel like the "NAP TIME" portion should have about 100 more exclamation points.

Before Gallaspy even gets to the academics portion of his schedule, he's been through a run and 90 minutes of team meetings. You know, I had been considering pursuing a football career but now that I've seen this, I'm going to reconsider. New plan is to check if NC State has a varsity sleeping team.
