Center of it All
Dave McMahon -- How has practice been going?
Kevin Perez -- It has been going good. It is good getting back at it. I felt like I struggled a little in the spring, but I feel like I am doing better now.
DM -- So how glad are you that you enrolled early?
KP -- I am very glad. I actually came in the day before the bowl game. First it has helped me out in my school work. In football I had a chance to learn the system early and learn the plays. I feel more comfortable than most of the freshmen since I know the system that much more.
DM -- You came in light for a lineman, what is your weight now?
KP -- I weigh about 278 pounds now. At G-Day I was around 260.
DM -- What do you want to be at?
KP -- Right now the coaches are telling me around 280.
DM -- Before this season, how much did you play the center position?
KP -- I mostly played tackle in high school, but I knew when I decided to come here that I would move to the inside. So later in high school I would play some center while warming up, but never in a game.
DM -- Are you adjusting to it?
KP -- I am learning. My pass protect is getting better. Overall I am snapping good. I am not messing up as much as I used to. It's a lot different than guard, but I am getting used to it.
DM -- Is Nick Jones helping?
KP -- Nick has helped a lot. Anytime you mess up, he will critique you and tell you how to do it right. He tells you the truth.
DM -- Being from Florida, are you used to this heat?
KP -- Florida has a different kind of heat. They have breezes. I am getting used to this, though.
DM -- Is there a rule, that offensive linemen from Miami have to wear uniform number 74?
KP -- I knew I couldn't wear 72 when I came here, but next I wanted 74, to keep it as a Miami number.
DM -- Thank you for your time and good luck with the new position.
