On Joe Yearby:
He’s always out there putting in 100-percent and working his tail off.
On Yearby and Dalvin Cook playing together in HS:
I didn’t know him. I knew they were teammates and they had competition going on. I never watched the film or anything.
On the year Cook had:
He’s good. He had a great year, a good game against us.
On why he’s improved this spring:
Just the experience. I know the offense better. Things are coming more naturally. I’m taking coaching better.
On his struggles last season:
It was just me accepting my role as a power back. Now I have a bigger role and I’m seeing more of the field now. You sit back and watch (Duke Johnson) and learn as much as you can.
On what he’s trying to change:
I try to talk a lot more. On third down, I try communicating with the offensive line on passing plays so we’re all on the same page.
On the new GPS system coaches are using:
One day I got up to 20 miles per hour. Rashawn Scott the very next practice went to 21. So far that’s the highest I heard. For me it was a breakout. For Scott it was a fade route. They come to you after practice and tell you. They tell you about your workload too. Coaches will say slow it down or tell you to go as hard as you can. It’s been good for us.
