Coaches Q&A with Joe Headen: 

When did he move to safety?

“His sophomore year he started at linebacker. Last year we moved him to safety.”


What are his strengths on the field?

“He has good instincts to the ball and good downhill player. He is real physical and a good tackler. He runs to the ball well and seems to always be in the right place at the right time. What he has you can’t teach. One thing I like about Tahki is he welcomes being the guy that makes the calls back there. Turner will be a three-year starter.”
