ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A burly fan who has exhorted St. Louis Rams players at several training camps to "get low and stick 'em" finally got the opportunity to show them exactly what he meant.
  
Coach Steve Spagnuolo (spag-NOH'-loh) invited Jerry Harrison into the team huddle Tuesday at the end of training camp. Then he had him line up in a three-point stance against Pro Bowl running back Steven Jackson and demonstrate proper technique.
  
For years, Harrison has singled out players by number with the warning, "I'm watching you!"
  
One season when the Rams were training in Macomb, Ill., the man reporters refer to as "Super Fan" and players just call "Coach" lost his voice but still croaked through several practices.
  
Jackson joked that Harrison should be the team's permanent mascot.
