Q&A with head football coach John Donnelly
Is he your go to receiver this year?
“He currently is, but I think our quarterback does a good job spreading the ball around.”
When he runs his routes is he more of an inside runner or a deep threat?
“He can do both. He is really good at controlling his body when the ball is in the air. He’s a big kid, 6-foot-3, 190-pounds. He runs the ball extremely well and runs precise routes. He is really good at the deep ball.”
How many years has he been a starter?
“This is year three. As a sophomore he wasn’t a full-time starter. But he did start some games for us.”
What kind of athlete is he?
“He has thrown three touchdowns on different reverse passes. He actually has completed 5 of 7 passes for 187 yards in his career. He is such a good athlete and a weapon in a lot of different ways.”
