Golden talks after final spring practice

Read on to see what Al Golden was saying following the team's final spring practice, what he wants to see at Saturday's spring game, and more.

On how much they’ll show in the spring game:
If we were to lean one way or another, it’s about executing what we do and not worry about who sees it. We’re going to put out a lot of challenging calls and see who can run with it.

On what they learned this spring:
We’ve learned a lot about our team. That’s part of spring. We identified who can do what. We had to figure out what we do best in terms of our personnel. This final 48 is a big deal. I say it every year. You go into that stadium and all eyes are on you. That’s different than being out here on Greentree.

On what the team will do between now and the game:
We’ll have more meetings, get rested up, and then get ready to go. They’ll have their game plans, their tip sheets, and we’ll treat it like a regular game.

On what the spring game means:
More than anything, you leave a very strong impression in terms of what you can do. For anyone that says they’ll get it in the fall, that’s fine but that doesn’t change that coaches will remember what happened in this game. There’s a lot at stake in this game.

On Rashawn Scott’s senior leadership:
What’s the sense of being a senior if you’re not going to use your wisdom, be a leader, and demand a lot of the younger guys. Rashawn has grown a lot. I’ve been very pleased with him. He’s unselfish and he’s worked hard. He can have a big impact on our team if he continues doing that.
