Coaches Q&A with Dave Rackovan:
Is he more of a power runner or slashing type?
“I think he is a combination of both. It is very difficult for one player to bring him down. And he will make you miss in the open field. He has real good hips and he is very explosive. He runs well and has breakaway speed. We will move him around.
Last year was his first year on the varsity level. Do you see a difference in him in camp?
“He is more of a runner this year. With the experience he got, he has learned how to be a running back. He is a lot more confident and can setup his runs. He has become a really good finisher. He understands the scheme a lot more. As a sophomore he relied on his natural ability and what we are seeing this year is he is becoming more of a polished running back.
Does he play defense?
“He plays safety for us. Only when we need him out there.”
“He is a great kid. He’s a really good student and very respected by his team. I can’t say enough about the things that he is off the field. That is what makes him special. He is a humble and very reserved kid.
