Coaches Q&A with Drew Gordon: 

What kind of leader is he?

“He is a quiet kid. He is more of a leader by example. He comes and does what he is supposed to do. He’s a very smart kid. He understands everything we try to do. He is very coachable and always working to get better. He is a team player first and will play anywhere on the field if it would help the team.”


He plays all over the field for you. Talk about his strengths?

I think his best position is outside. He is not a big kid, but has good speed and instincts. He understands what he is doing out there whether it is at receiver, quarterback or safety. He is a student of the game. One of the things a like about him is even in practice he will lineup against our best player so he can get better. On defense his strength is anticipation and speed.”
