NFL training camp area update

Three former area high school football standouts are in NFL training camps. Here's how they are faring in August:

Ricky Stanzi (Lake Catholic): The fifth-round pick of the Chiefs has been the team's No. 3 QB in training camp and has been OK, completing 10 of 20 passes for 92 yards in two appearances. He's also thrown an interception and been sacked eight times. Stanzi and Tyler Palko of Pittsburgh are battling for the backup spot behind starter Matt Cassel.

Mike Preston (Euclid): The undrafted free agent of the Titans said he's done some good things in practice, but has not had an opportunity in Tennessee's first two preseason games.

Eric Kettani (Lake Catholic): The Navy graduate spent the last two years completing his military obligations. He was signed by the Patriots two years ago, but Kettani said he recently had surgery after getting injured early in training camp. "Just taking it day by day," said Kettani.
