Brandon Kublanow: On the Record

ATHENS - Brandon Kublanow speaks with media following Tuesday's spring football practice.

Q: Did you get any 11-on-11 work at center today?

A: Yeah, I played all center today.

Q: In shorts, is it safe to assume it wasn’t as physical a practice?

A: Yeah, not as physical, but it was definitely a good learning day.

Q: Will we see you playing (center) in the fall?

A: It’s possible. We’ll see.

Q: How’s your snapping?

A: It’s getting there. I’ve never done it before, but I’m working on it and we’ll work on it some more.

Q: Is snapping becoming second nature to you?

A: It’s something you’ve got to focus on at first to make sure you get the play going right, but in the future I’ll get it down and it will be muscle memory.

Q: Do you think the coaches are just getting you ready for a situation where you might have to substitute at center or do you think they are considering moving you?

A: I’m not sure at this point. I think the may move me and they may not. I can play guard and if I can play center I think it will definitely help me.

Q: Did you ever play center in high school?

A: No.

Q: Being left-handed, is you being at center more of a challenge for the quarterbacks?

A: It was an adjustment at first, but everyone has to get used to different things. We felt fine after practice getting some snaps in and it was going well.

Q: Will your primary focus be on working at center this summer?

A: It’s possible, yeah.

Q: Did you want to play at center in any of the scrimmages?

A: I’m just doing what I’m asked to do. Whatever they need me to do, I’ll do it.

Q: How much could having the ability to play guard and center help you in a football career after college?

A: Definitely a lot. I probably couldn’t play guard in the NFL. I’m way too short so it’ll definitely help me a lot to learn.

Q: How did the idea come up for you to practice at center?

A: I think we knew from the start that I may be thrown in there and we were just going to see how the spring goes and as it went on they just gave me more work.
