Coaches Q&A with Jim Smith:
What kind of leader is he?
“He is a quiet leader. He is very coachable. He is a smaller kid and is hit on every play. But he is very durable and he is a tough kid.”
What type of quarterback is he?
“He runs the show out there. He has a set of base plays and will read the defensive front and call two or three plays of what that read is. We run a triple option and he is really smart at what play to run. He’s very quick and fast. He can throw and he is efficient at doing it.”
How’s he on the defensive side?
“He is the type of player that we will match up with the other opponents best player.”
