Streeter talks about catching back up

Tommy Streeter is a talented wide receiver who was forced to redshirt last season because of an injury. Read on to see what Streeter's now saying about spring so far, his comeback, things he learned while sitting out last season, his thoughts on Coach Whipple's offense, and more.

Q: How good does it feel to be back?
A: It is just so exciting. Last season was rough, but I am back and ready to help my team win.

Q: How hard was sitting out last year for you?
A: I used to cry some of the games, being that I couldn't play. Especially the times we were down. It hurt. I wanted to help my team. Not being able to participate made me feel like I wasn't part of the team.

Q: How has the comeback been going for you?
A: I feel like I'm behind always, but I'm catching up. We have a new offensive coordinator so the playing field is basically even as far as learning the playbook, but as far as reading college coverage and the style of corners we face I am behind the other guys. I ill catch up though.

Q: Do you feel like you have lost any speed or are a little behind physically?
A: No I still have my speed. Working with Coach Swasey let me regain everything quickly. I feel my wrist a little bit when I am blocking, but it is just something I will have to deal with.

Q: Did you learn anything while sitting out last year?
A: I took mental notes. I saw how guys were successful and how they struggled. I just tried to be a cheerleader for the team and learn what I could from the sidelines.

Q: What did you think of Coach Whipple's offense?
A: I love it. Coach just has no much experience from college and the NFL. He is a wonderful guy. We should do some great things on offense.
