At the start of fall camp
“It’s always exciting to be here. We have a lot of youngsters and I feel like everyone can play. As long as you know your lineman assignment and technique, you will go far. young group have, I’m really excited for them.”
On top management
“I kind of talk to them one-on-one. I don’t talk as well with the whole team, but I’m definitely a leader and whenever they need help they come to me and I teaches them what to do, especially in the running backs room. We have a few young guys here, but like you said, we have a lot of experienced guys around and they’re layering on top of us. As for the running back group, they can all play in. They all did really well at spring prom and came into fall camp shooting everywhere and I’m very confident in our running back group.
On competition within a job group
“We always push each other. We always give constructive criticism to each other like, ‘Hey, you can improve in that area’ or ‘You could have hit that hole a little harder.’ That’s the relationship we have in this group of running backs. We’re all pretty close to each other, and that’s always a good feeling; developing chemistry and knowing each other’s strengths and weaknesses and starting from the.
On the depth of opposing teams
“It will always be good to have three quality full-backs. We’re going to give these teams a hard time and we’re going to give our best and we’re going to be ready.”
On the preparation of Penn State and Iowa State
“Obviously we want to win these games, we don’t want to lose. It’s always great to be able to play Power Five teams outside of conference games and just show your ability. MAC schools sometimes play in the small schools and stuff like that. , but honestly, these are opportunities of a lifetime. We will remember those times forever, especially non-league games and big games like this. Our goal is to win the game.”
On team chemistry
“We put a strong emphasis on being a family and coming together, even outside of football. It all starts outside the Peden Stadium, developing that relationship with each other and transferring them onto the pitch. “We all get along, we have talks and stuff like that, it’s more than just football. I’m very excited about this team; they’re like my family and we can talk about everything comfortably. That’s the thing. most important.”
On team goals
“The MAC Championship is always the goal. We know what it takes to get there and I think this year is our best year when it comes to off-season work. A lot of guys are doing work outside of structured work We’re here on the inside doing extra mobility and speed training and stuff like that I see a lot of guys taking that extra step – that hunger shows up on the court when you see them running and play physically – very strong and fast. I feel like it’s going to take us a long way.”
