Videos: Skinner, McKinney Talk Juice Points

STARKVILLE | Mississippi State’s linebackers have some experienced guys this season, led by senior Deontae Skinner and sophomore Benardrick McKinney. Those two showed up for interviews following the first of two practices today – two-a-days are here – and talked about their roles as defensive leaders.

McKinney is doing plenty of leading by example, as he leads the defense in “juice points.” Defensive coordinator Geoff Collins said that McKinney racked up 40 juice points in a recent practice, noting that getting just eight or nine juice points is considered good for other players.

So, here are Skinner and McKinney, talking about the juice points, among other things.
