Making a good first impression

The Colts drafted Fountain in the fifth round.

Indianapolis - Colts rookie receiver Daurice Fountain is known for his tendency to come to work early and staying longer than everyone else.

The former Madison Memorial star isn't taking any chances when it comes to getting to practice on time, and he won't risk sleeping in.

"I set like two alarms. Set one at six o'clock, one at six fifteen. You never know," Fountain said with a smile. "You want to make a good first impression anyway. I didn't want to be that guy who's coming late to the bus or late in the meeting room."

The former Northern Iowa standout steadily improved during his final two years in college, and Fountain wants to show the Colts they made the right decision by picking him in the fifth round of the draft.

"I know my challenge. Obviously there are great players out there. There's a lot of great players on this team."
