Coaches Q&A with John Truby: 

He is one of the top receivers in America. Talk about KJ.

“He is a smart player. He picked up our offense pretty quickly. He is the complete package. He can run the ball, throw it and does kick and punt returns.


He is such a weapon, do you want to get him the ball more this year?

“We want to get KJ as many touches as we can. I am going to line up KJ all over the field. At times we may motion him out of the backfield. We are going to try and create mismatches.”


What are his strengths?

“His athletic ability. I’ll give you a example. In practice the other day we threw a ball to KJ and the defender was even with him and KJ just went up and got the ball. It’s one of those plays you can’t teach him. He has natural ability. Any time we throw the football at him he wants the ball. I think that is his best attribute. When the ball is up in the air he owns it.”


Will he play defense?

“He will play corner for us this year. He is a big corner and we feel he can lock down any receiver in our league this year. His strength is his covering ability. He doesn’t want any one scoring on him. He is a competitive kid.”
