Michael Scherer, a redshirt sophomore from St. Louis, is a 2013 SEC Academic Honor Roll selection and a business major.  No doubt Scherer has the smarts.  He used his book smarts to gain an advantage on the football field by learning the Mizzou defensive playbook front and back.  It was done to help him get a leg up on the offense.  Scherer also spent the summer working on his speed, rather than his strength.
