The Sun's Arizin: Kevin Monangai is back with the Eagles

Hard work pays off, kids.

Huuuuuuuuump Daaaaaaay! It appears as if Kevin Monangai has taken the latest step in his journey to an NFL roster. The Philadelphia Eagles have reportedly brought Monangai back to the practice squad, where he'll continue to have the opportunity to work his way up to the 53-man roster.

We just had the Atlanta Alumni Golf Outing on Monday, and Brian Finneran gave a great talk about how Villanova taught him about perseverance (I never fully realized the path he took the Falcons before that night), and it's great to see another Wildcat working hard to make his dreams come true. Keep at it, Kev.

And now, the "news."
