Woody Baron and his Brentwood Academy (Brentwood, TN) teammates are enjoying a bye week this week, but the Virginia Tech-bound senior is quick to clarify that the bye week is not a time to relax. The 6’1″, 250-pound defensive lineman/offensive guard provides the latest on his senior season and much more in this second installment of the TSL Pass Recruiting Diary.

“It’s a bye week. We take it as a bye week and not an off week. We work to get better and game-plan for the next game. We try and get the guys who are banged up healthy again,” said Baron, whose team will next take on Baylor High School of Chattanooga on September 30.

Since we last spoke with the 2010 Mr. Football Tennessee (Lineman) finalist, Brentwood Academy has reeled off two big victories – a 42-20 win over Stratford and a 55-6 decision over Pope John Paul II. That makes for four straight wins after a season opening loss to Trinity (Louisville, KY).

“We’ve fine-tuned some stuff. We’re executing better,” Baron said. “We’re far from where we need to be, though.”

Individually, “I’d say I’m playing decent,” Baron said. “I can always do better. You’re never playing as bad as you think or as good as you think.”

The Daily/Weekly Grind

Baron tells what a typical weekday is like in his life.

“I usually wake up around 5:30, but I don’t get up until around 6,” said Baron, admittedly “absolutely not” a morning person.

“From there, I eat breakfast and I try to leave for school around 7:15. School starts at 7:45, and it takes me about 20 minutes to get to school.

“We run block scheduling, so we have four classes each day. Eight total. School ends for me around 1:30 or 1:45. Then I do pre-practice workouts. Usually I get my abs and core workouts in. I’ll do hamstring exercises and things like that to get loosened up. Practice is from 3 to
