Coaches Q&A with Steve Devlin:
Q. What are his strengths at running back?
A. As a runner, he has great vision and has a long stride and an explosive step. If he gets a step on you, he’s gone and will out run you.
He doesn’t shy away from contact either. He’s strong and initiates contact. He runs inside or outside and is hard to bring down.
He has tremendous hands. We like to throw to him in open space and let him make plays.
Q. What are his strengths on defense?
A. He’s a very solid tackler. He plays a lot of different spots. He’s fast and can cover people and has tremendous hands on defense.
We know with him back their with his speed, he can make that touchdown saving tackle.
Q. How’s Jarrett on special teams?
A. He has great hands and vision. He sets up his blocks well. He’s a threat every time he touches the ball.
