Q&A with Michael Harrison

Michael Harrison had an impact on the Cowboy offense as a freshman in 2010, catching 14 passes for 135 yards and three touchdowns despite fighting through injuries. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound wide out took time to partake in a Q&A session with Go Pokes.

How fired up are you just be back on the field playing football?

"I'm very excited because I'm back and healthy. I think this is the first time I've been in camp here without an injury so I feel really good."

You had some pretty big moments out on the field last year, what are you expecting from yourself this season?

"Same thing but even better. I'm working hard in practice and I'm excited to get out there and have fun on game day."

Obviously a lot of the focus nationally is on Justin Blackmon but you all have a very deep and talented receiving corps. What do you think about the group you guys have at the position?

"Everybody is on the same page and we've really bonded together as a group. We're all working hard and we're ready to work even harder. Justin deserves all the attention he's getting so there's the rest of us are ready to do our part and make sure defense can't decide to just lock him down without consequences. We have a lot of talent."

What are some of the adjustments you've had to make in Todd Monken's system versus what you all did last year under coach Holgorsen?

"It really hasn't been much of an adjustment at all, really. Coach Holgorsen had some wrinkles and things he liked to do and coach Monken is the same way but overall the offense is very similar and we all adjusted to it real quick. I didn't have any problem making the change."

What do you miss the most about playing football during the offseason?

"Oh man, I miss the fans. They're the lifeblood of what we do. I can't wait to get out there in front of them again."

How ready are you to get out there on Sept. 3 against Louisiana-Lafayette?

"I'm so ready I can't sleep at night and it's still a good ways off. I'm fired up, man. I can't wait and I know it's the same for the rest of this. We're ready to get this thing under way."
