Coaches Q&A with Mike Schuback: 

How is he at tight end?

“At tight end he is a physical blocker. When we put him at the H-back position we are moving him in motion and creating mismatches against defensive ends. This year we are going to get him involved more this year.”


What are his strengths?

“I remember putting him in his sophomore year and in five games he forced more fumbles than we forced all year. He has a natural ability. He has that knack at forcing turnovers in big games. He has a nose for the ball and good football sense. He is a great player in space. The fact that he can run is a big plus for us on defense. He does a lot of things for us and is an every down player.”
