Coaches Q&A with Carm DeFrancesco:
What are his strengths?
“He is calm under pressure and respected by his teammates. His best asset is his toughness. He runs the ball, takes a hit and is a good scrambler. He is good at extending a play with his legs and is mentally tough.”
With his experience coming back are you going to throw more?
“We are going to use his experience and throw the ball. We are going to throw it all over the field this year. I wouldn’t be surprised if we throw it 25 times a game or more this year.”
How is he on defense?
“He doesn’t play much safety for us. But if he had to he could be a good one, because he is tough. It will depend on how the game is going as for as how much he plays.
