Helping team not overreact…
- I think that’s my job is to insulate, because everyone else overreacts.
- We’re not happy. Let’s not say that. But they understand when we started the season, we made a pact in that room that we’re gonna go one week at a time.
- We’ll have to reassess our goals as we go obviously, but there’s a lot for this team to play for — most importantly their pride.
- They want to fight hard to get that locker room the way they want it after a win.
- He’s super competitive.
- Doesn’t get rattled
- Stays coachable
- Hard on himself, but he doesn’t lose himself in tough moments.
- These are very difficult, but also very rewarding experiences for him right now.
- What he’s going through as a Redshirt Freshman will make him that much better.
- I like how he comes to work.
- He’s in the office at night on his own every night for 2 hours watching film.
- He’s very dedicated to being a good football player.
