Lilly Updates on TEs

ATHENS - TEs coach John Lilly updated reporters on Jay Rome and the rest of the tight ends.

You would have to ask Ron about Jay. We have to be concerned with his conditioning. I think anytime you have a lower body injury that can be a little hard.

Jeb - you always try to not have too high expectations for a guy. You learn a little more every day. We will find out more tomorrow

On Ledbetter - I admire him because he’s not played football in some time. Its not like he’s been sitting around. If you stuck me in Spanish class right now and asked me to go somewhere and speak fluently somewhere in three weeks I would struggle.

Hicks has done well. I’ve been proud of him. I think he knows exactly what we want and how it is done. I really like his energy level out there. He’s a guy that other guys can feed off of. Sometimes you need a guy with pep in his step out there. He changed his face mask because he can see the ball better now. Everyone was asking after the first practice if Brice knocked too many of those bars (of his face mask) out.

Jay knows more than everyone else. It could end up being any of them back there. This is a process. We are not playing tomorrow.
