Episode 9: "Ra'Shede" - October 17

"Brick by Brick" is how Jerry Kill is building the Gopher football program. It means being consistent, and doing things the right way -- the hard way. It means not taking the easy way out, no shortcuts. For Minnesota Football, "Brick by Brick" isn't just a saying -- it's a lifestyle.

On the field, Gophers defensive lineman Ra'Shede Hageman is a beast -- the Minneapolis native is Minnesota's leader on defense and a projected first-round NFL draft choice. Off the field, he's a mild-mannered gentle giant and Youth Studies major who enjoys working with kids!
