A: It was tough not to play and just have to spend the year learning and getting better, but it was a good experience.
Q: What things did you improve on over last year?
A: My throwing motion has changed a bit. I have a higher release than I used to have. And my footwork has gotten a lot better since when I came in.
Q: All the players talk about you having the strongest arm on the team. How far can you throw the football?
A: I can throw it about 70 yards.
Q: How is the competition for the back-up job coming along?
A: It is going well. I want to be the starter, but you have to be the number 2 first.
Q: What are you weighing now?
A: I am at 235. I was at 220 when I came in last year.
Q: Last year you were listed as the back-up punter on the depth chart. Is that something you are still doing?
A: Not right now, but if that is something the team needs me to do I am fine with it. I will do whatever it takes to help us win.
