Four members of the 2011 Rutgers football team DE Manny Abreu (Union City, N.,J.), DL Justin Francis (Opa-Locka, Fla.), FB Joe Martinek (Hopatcong, N.J.) and OL Desmond Wynn (Bear, Del.) will participate in postseason all-star games in January.
PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Rutgers presses on with bowl practice, and with each practice fifth-year senior Justin Francis moves closer to his last practice. The always entertaining Francis went 1-on-1 with ScarletReport.com to talk about practice, his academic responsibilities winding down, his best position at the next level and more.
EAST HARTFORD, Conn. -- Rutgers fifth-year senior Justin Francis has one more game in his career, but before he looks ahead at a bowl game, he talked about what went wrong at Connecticut. He suffered a nasty gash on his right calf that required stitches in the first half, and he returned but didn't have much impact in the 42-20 loss.
PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Rutgers defensive tackle Justin Francis had a career-high 10 tackles in Saturday's 41-31 loss to West Virginia, and afterward he spoke about losing a 10-point halftime lead, and the disappointment of losing a 17th straight to the Mountaineers.
