FNL: Chaz Sutton Q&A

Savannah (Ga.) Jenkins star Chaz Sutton traveled to Friday Night Lights with fellow teammate and Gator commit Franklin Green. After the camp, Sutton assessed his performance.

How would say the night went for you overall?

"It started out kind of rough. I started off by taking the wrong steps. I was over-exaggerating my steps and technique. Once I settled down, though, I started to get some things down."

What were some of the things you were able to take away from the night?

"There's always room for improvement. You study back and June and then Friday Night Lights is like one big test to prove to everyone else that you're a player."

How was your first trip back to Gainesville as a committed Gator?

"It feels like home."

What do you have in store for the rest of the summer?

"I'm just going to continue getting ready for my senior season and continue working hard. I really want to come out and have an amazing senor season - one of the best of my life."

Have you thought about official visits?

"I'll probably come here, but I will also go and check out some other places."

Overall, what stood out most during the camp?

"It was a great night. The best thing was the competition and competing against the best. That's the main thing."


Sutton was one of the few defensive ends to wear pads, but throughout the drills with Coach Greg Mattison, he looked very solid. He's comes out of the three-point stance with explosiveness and plays with aggression. He's very lean and strong, but has room to grow and get even stronger.

Despite his height, he's very athletically gifted and should be a n intense pass rusher from the edge.
