Q & A: Antonio Hall
Q: Let's talk about the depth of the offensive line. How have you tried to help younger offensive linemen coming up? Have you helped them develop in the event that you get hurt or have to come out for a play?
A: The starting five this year worked a lot as far as technique, pass rush, runnin' back with the offensive line after our conditioning days this year. We really got on them about doing things right, the little things, stepping right, putting your hands in the right position, so I feel that once we go through camp they'll be able to step on the field.
Q: What type of leader are you?
A: I lead by example. I don't say anything unless something just has to be said. A lot of people do their job. Once I see something that I really don't like or approve of then I consult other leaders on the team and see what they think. I'm not a person to just always jump on somebody, that's not my style. I try to let people do what they do and just get the job done.
Q: You're a big key because you are the blind side for Jared Lorenzen. What have you done this off season as far as workouts, running, conditioning, what have you done to make yourself stronger from last year?
A: If anything I did this year was film study, watching my opponent, just looking for tendencies, looking for blitzes, anything to make Jared have a big year this year. I told I'd get him a big game at
Q: What are you guys going to play for this year? I know it's going to be tough but you guys don't really have anything to lose this year do you?
A: I think what we're playing for this year is respect. Two years without it, I came from a winning program all my life and it hurts to be looked down upon as far as that aspect goes.
