There were a few ups and downs along the way, but the highs out-weighed the lows.
The season was bookended by feel-good moments -- a 9-yard fourth quarter touchdown catch against Georgia and a 5-yard score in the Orange Bowl. The low point was somewhere near the middle -- the first play from scrimmage against Florida State.
While Seckinger's self-confidence waned after the Florida State game, he said the coaches kept it from getting too low.
"Well, anytime the coaches have confidence in you it will boost your confidence, naturally. For them to have confidence in me was huge," he said. "Not only that, but the players [would] come up and give me encouragement, so it helps having the coaches confidence.
"But, the players next to you -- having their confidence helps a lot."
Feeling rejuvenated during spring practice, Seckinger looks forward to year No. 2 as a full-time tight end.
"I would say my knowledge of the offense has come a long way. Obviously, since I've been here, but really in the past year," he said. "My strengths, coming from receiver, have always been ball skills and catching the ball. There's always things like that you can work on."
Bulking up has been among Seckinger's biggest priorities since the position switch.
"I'm hoping, as long as I can stay around 225 once I hit the summertime, I should be able to, hopefully, gain another 15-20 pounds over the summertime pretty easily, kind of like I did last summer, hopefully come into camp about 245, 240," he said.
Seckinger is just one of several tight ends that will play this season. He, Sam Cooper, Jay Jay McCullough and Jordan Leggett are all expected to contribute in some way, shape or form this season.
"We're all really good athletes," Seckinger said. "Everyone has their strengths and weaknesses. I think, right now, we're just trying to figure out how we can all play together and rotate through together and play, to be able to maximize all of our strengths."
Seckinger looks forward to round two
