Coaches Q&A with Tom Falzone: 

Talk about his running game?

“He’s a hard nose runner. He runs hard and is difficult to tackle. He also has break away speed. He’s a track guy. Early in his career he was a finesse runner. Now he wants to run you over more. He is one of the strongest guys on the team. He has worked hard this off-season to get stronger and faster.”

“He is a really grounded kid. He shows up to work.”
