From Steve Myers,

Hello from Ottawa. Kerry I enjoyed watching you play for the Riders last season and wish you all the best for the 2007 season. I've already purchased my Grey Cup tickets for Toronto in November and I hope to see you guys there representing the West. Btw, being that you are from the southern parts of the US, do you get a chance to catch any good blues music in the off season? I'm a big blues fan and take my band (Myers Brothers Blues Band www.quazimojoblues.com) down to Mississippi to play every year. God Bless, Steve.

I DO GET A CHANCE TO ATTEND THE HERITAGE JAZZ FESTIVAL EVERY YEAR AT THE END OF APRIL AND BEGINNING OF MAY. THERE ARE MANY BANDS WHO PARTICIPATE IN THE TWO WEEKEND FESTIVAL. THANKS FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT AND I HOPE TO SEE YOU AT THE CUP IN TORONTO.

ANY RECEIVER THAT I SEE OPEN. I TRUST AND ENJOY THROWING TO ALL MY RECEIVERS. I LIKE TO KEEP EVERYBODY INVOLVED IN THE GAME.

From Ralph Vital,

What made you start playing professional football?

IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN A DREAM OF MINE. GOD BLESSED ME WITH THE TALENT TO PLAY FOOTBALL AND I JUST CONTINUE TO KEEP WORKING TO BE THE BEST. FOOTBALL IS SOMETHING I ENJOY DURING AND IT TAKES A LOT OF HARD WORK TO CONTINUE TO PLAY.

From Rodney Burks,

Kerry, Congratulations on an outstanding career, and good luck in this coming season. You have been amazing to watch since that first McNeese practice. I only wish I could have been four years younger so that you could have won me some of those SLC rings. I have watched you from McNeese to now, and I have been impressed the whole time. MSU misses its two favorite New Iberians, that being you and Coach Keasler. Kerry you are a class act and you always have been. Keep being you, and may God continue to bless you. Geaux Pokes! Geaux KJ!

THANKS FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT. IT IS ALWAYS GOOD TO HEAR FROM FRIENDS AND FANS FROM MCNEESE. I WILL ALWAYS BLEED BLUE AND GOLD. MCNEESE AND LAKE CHARLES IS A BLESSING FOR ME AND I WILL CONTINUE TO VISIT. GEAUX POKES!!!!!!!!

From Ryan C:

Kerry, It shows alot of a guy that took the hit you did on your salary for the good of the team, can't wait to see you with our receivers and our new O dancin in the End zone! But how is your knee coming along and are you able to clear the air and tell us exactly what the injury was and just how much it effected you last season? Thanks

MY KNEE IS FEELING GOOD AND I AM READY TO GO THIS SEASON. I HAVE PUT THAT INJURY IN THE PAST AND WITH ALL DO RESPECT I AM LOOKING TO THE PRESENT FOR THIS UPCOMING SEASON. THANKS FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT.

- KJ

From Marlon,

Hope your having a great offseason! Do you feel that it will be harder not having KK beside you back there to take the heat off you, or are you comfortable with Bracey or Dorsey carrying the ball and blocking? Do you feel Kent Austin will be able to show you some new prospectives of the game that will help you get better as a player?

WE WILL MISS KK BECAUSE IS A GREAT PLAYER AND I WISH ALL THE BEST AS HE CONTINUES TO FURTHER HIS CAREER IN THE NFL. BRACEY AND DORSEY WILL STEP UP AND DO A GOOD JOB FOR US. IT WHEN BE LOTS OF FUN PLAYING UNDER KENT AUSTIN AND I KNOW HE WILL BRING A LOT OF KNOWLEDGE TO OUR TEAM.

- KJ

From Lulu Martin,

I am planning a trip to Canada in the next football off-season. I have a 9 year old son who is interested in football camp. By any chance, will you be running any football camps, or do you know of any that will be running?

I DO NOT RUN ANY CAMPS DURING THE SEASON BECAUSE I JUST DONT HAVE THE TIME WITH THE WORK HOURS OF THE SEASON. I KNOW SCOTT SCHULTZ HAS A FOOTBALL CAMP BUT I AM NOT EXACTLY SURE WHAT ARE THE DATES. I RUN A FOOTBALL CAMP BACK IN MY HOME TOWN OF NEW IBERIA, LA. BUT I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO ATTEND BECAUSE OF MY FOOTBALL SCHEDULE BUT THE CAMP CONTINUES RUN ITSELF.

- KJ

From Brandon,

I was wondering how do you feel about KK going to the NFL to play for the Colts and how will the team fill his spot?

I AM GLAD KK HAS THAT OPPURTUNITY. I KNOW HE WILL DO WELL WITH THE COLTS AND I WISH HIM ALL THE BEST. SOMEONE WILL HAVE TO STEP UP AND BE READY TO GO AND FILL THAT VOID
