  Among the Colorado safeties, Derrion Rakestraw is known as the "old man." Rakestraw has earned that badge not only because he's the lone senior among the group. He's also the guy that many of the others lean on. "He's the guy that gets them lined up, he's the guy that communicates with them," CU defensive coordinator Tyson Summers said. "He's been an example to them and done a great job with his leadership. "He's one of my favorite guys, and obviously having been his position coach last year he's special to me. He's special to me for a lot of different reasons, but he's playing at a high level, communicating well and I'm really proud of everything he's done to this point in time."

CU opens the season Nov. 7 against UCLA and Rakestraw is one of the keys to their success because of his leadership in the back of the defense. Rakestraw has played in 36 games (11 starts) and is one of only eight seniors on the roster. He's one of only three remaining from the 2016 Pac-12 South championship team (along with linebacker Akil Jones and quarterback Sam Noyer). With all that experience, Rakestraw has a new level of confidence. "I'm pretty confident going into this season, just because the experience I got last year really helped me be able to play a lot faster," he said. "Really with the whole defense we're trying to pick up where we left off last season, so I'm confident with the calls we got; I'm confident with our coaches and everybody out on the field with me." - Daily Camera
