Good Morning Eagle Fans!  If you haven't guessed by the title of this post, today is Kevin Winford's 22nd birthday.  In honor of the occasion today's links will focus on the Eagle Guard who will be one of the team's returning Seniors in the 2012-2013 season.

Let's start out with a quick review of our previous post regarding Kevin's 2011-2012 season and the outlook for 2013

Next head over to goeags.com for their profile on Kevin featuring Head Coach Jim Hayford's always enthusiastic words, "The fact Kevin has been in Eastern’s program for three years – as long as anybody – gives us maturity. He is a tremendous shooter and has worked really hard to improve his skill with the ball in leading the team. This will allow him to play both guard positions in our offense. Cerebrally, he picks things up and has great emotional balance, so I expect him to be a key contributor for the Eagles this year.”

What "tribute" post would be complete without a youtube highlight?  Here's one from Kevin's senior year of high school:

Finally we'll head over to ESPN.go.com to check out the recaps of two games in which Winford showed his offensive prowess: November 27, 2010 versus Idaho where he scored 28 points and the December 4th, 2010 game against New Hope Christian when he led all scorers with 39 points.
