All the running backs are good, we just push each other and compete every day. We just try to make each other better.
On his opportunity this year
Last year I was watching on the sideline but this year I feel like I can help the team win a lot of games and hopefully win a national championship.
Track went well I came in 6th in the finals but I was out there competing just trying to get faster. My time was a 6.84 in the finals but my fastest was 6.83 so I think I did pretty well.
On how he feels physically
I'm much faster than last year .I was on the scout team last year giving the defense a good look and that definitely helped me out and it also helped the defense. I feel much better than last year.
On being the fastest player
I don't know because Travis Benjamin beat me a couple times during track so I don't know who's the fast. I raced him twice and he beat me both times so he's probably the fastest guy.
On his opportunity during practice
I feel like it's my time to show the fans and the coaches what I got. I'm just out here trying to compete and make each one of us better as a team. I just want the team to score more touchdowns and show my breakaway speed.
I'm trying to improve on my blocking and pass protection.
On a good spring
I just have to come out here and compete and make everyone better
On his redshirt year
It made me better as a runner and in my pass protection and I'm just trying to stay focused and healthy on and off the field.
On his weight
I put on a lot of weight at Miami, but since I ran track I lost a couple pounds, but right now I'm at 212. I came into school at about 203, but I want to play at about 205 to 207 so I'm trying to lose a couple of pounds
Weight lifting numbers
I couldn't really do the lifts because I was at track.
On his big plays at practice
I had a couple of big runs today but that was about it. I had my runs in 11 on 11, I had two big runs. We were practicing at the 30 so they were two 30 yard touchdowns.
What he saw on the TD runs
On one we ran a counter and I just saw the hole so I just cut back and out ran everybody. The other play was a stretch play and I just cut it back inside because everyone was overpursuing. We just did stand up hitting today though so we'll see.
On his mindset
I just want to get on the field and help the team out. We have great running backs and the best guy will win so I'm just trying to get better.
I didn't want a double digit number and it was close to seven so I picked 6.
On his improvements
My pass protection and reading defenses. In high school we really didn't do that much pass protection because we ran the ball a lot so I didn't know that much about it.
On fan excitement
Well I don't pay attention to that stuff I'm just trying to stay focused and get on the field and help my team out.
On his Grandfather
He retired last year. I never got to ride on the bus with him. My grand dad used to drive the hurry cane shuttles. When I got here he had retired already.
I did ok for my third indoor track team. I plan on doing outdoor but I'm just trying to stay focused on football right now. It helped me a lot with my speed and just competing against other fast people will make you faster.
