Cogswell Ready for Duty

Originally scouted by UC to be a quarterback, redshirt freshman Tyler Cogswell continues to adapt to his new position at tight end.

Now that his redshirt year has concluded, Tyler Cogswell looks to adapt to his new position and a new offense that he has had a full year to familiarize himself with. Insider caught up with Cogswell after practice to talk about his emerging role with the offense.

"I'm not looking to demand a starting spot. Whatever the coaches need me to do on the offensive side of the ball or on special teams, I'm just going to do my best with the team," Cogswell said. "I'm just glad that I can finally put the pads on and play some football with my teammates out on the field."

When asked about playing away from Nippert and playing in Paul Brown Stadium for the next season, he talked about playing in a great atmosphere, especially in an NFL stadium.

"I loved the atmosphere during the scrimmage at PBS. I mean it kinda stinks playing away from the campus on Saturday afternoons, but playing in a bigger stadium, an NFL stadium at that, that's quite the consolation prize," Cogswell said.

While at American Heritage School at QB, Cogswell played in a Pro Style offense and he was predominantly a pocket passer. When Cogswell was asked about playing in an entirely different style of offense in a new position, he replied that "it was a little different than the offense he was accustomed to, but since I have a full year of learning a new offense that coach Tuberville has installed, it's gotten so much easier to understand."
