leg to see where I was at compared to
high school,” Demps said. “I am not
where I was.”
Demps said his left leg is only 60
percent better. Practicing three times a
week doesn’t help the healing process.
For a speedster, not being able to
run at full speed has been frustrating,
“I’m used to everyone knowing
me for speed,” Demps said. “I’m used
to going off my speed to make up for
most of the mistakes I make. Right
now, I can’t afford to make mistakes.”
Once spring football is over,
Demps plans to work every day
strengthening his leg.
“I’m going to focus on getting my
leg back up to par,” Demps said. “I’m
going to stay here all summer and get
it back to where it was. Hopefully by
the season, I will be 100 percent.”

Rodman, 37, and Electra, 26, were
married in Las Vegas on Nov. 14 after
what was reported to be an all-night
bender. Nine days later, Rodman cried
fraud and filed for an annulment. He
said he was of unsound mind when he
recited his vows.
