Hold on Tight
Dave McMahon -- How has practice been going?
David Johnson -- It's been hot, but overall it has been real good. These guys are getting a lot of reps in.
DM -- How has Martrez Milner been doing?
DJ -- He broke his finger earlier in camp, but it is fine now. His back in bothering him as well. But he has been doing well so far.
DM -- What does he need to work on?
DJ -- He needs to be more of a leader. He understands what I expect of him, he just needs to do it. He's been around for a long time and has even started a few games for us.
DM -- What about Tripp Chandler?
DJ -- He is doing very good. He was used as a blocker last year, but now he is stronger and smarter.
DM -- You don't hear a lot about Trahern Holden or Coleman Watson... what about them?
DJ -- They provide great depth. Coleman has had a good camp. He is catching the ball well. He just needs to be more consistant. Trahern knows what to do when it is needed.
DM -- How is Na Derris Ward progressing?
DJ -- He is learning a lot. He has grown up. The first few days were very overwhelming for him. One of the things he is learning is how fast the collegiate game is.
DM -- Is this Tight End University?
DJ -- It has been a good thing. I am proud of the tradition this school has with its tight ends. All the players, even the pro guys stay in contact with us. They encourage the team.
DM -- What is the role of a tight end?
DJ -- The tight end is the total athlete. He has to block and catch and run. He has to read defenses and communicate well with the tackles and the quarterback.
DM -- Is there a tight end throughout history that best describes your description of a tight end?
DJ -- I grew up a Dave Casper fan. He was very skilled and tough.
DM -- Thank you for your time and your answers.
