Coaches Q&A with Rich Drayton:
What kind of leader is he?
“He is a quiet leader. He doesn’t talk much, but when he does we all listen to him. He leads by example.”
What are his strengths?
“The reason I want to move him to running back is his vision. He is good at hitting the hole quickly and than he is gone. Once he gets in open space he is hard to catch. He is very good at catching the ball out of the back field. We are going to move him in the slot and create match up problems.”
How is he on defense?
“He plays corner for us. He’s our lock down guy. We usually leave Walt by himself and double team on the other side.”
