Coaches Q&A with Jack Henzes:
What kind of leader is he?
“He has a great work ethic. He is the type of kid that is first at practice and last to leave the field. Everyone follows his lead. He is a quiet kid and this year I see him stepping up and being the leader in the locker room.”
What has he learned at camps this summer?
“He has gone to different camps this year and he found out as good as he is, there may be a player just as good as him or better out there. So he has worked hard on certain skills to get better this summer.”
What type of running back is he?
“He is a powerful running back, people just bounce off him. He has size, speed and he has great vision. He has a explosive first step and can make a cut on a dime. He can run you over and has breakaway speed. When we need him he is a great blocker.”
“We like to put him in different sets and have him come out of the backfield so we can throw him the ball. He has very good hands.”
