PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Fullback Sam Bergen has plenty of experience with tough luck and season-ending injuries.

Tearing his ACL twice at East Stroudsburg High (Pa.), Bergen can sympathize with starter Michael Burton, who saw his sophomore season come to an end with a bad leg injury against Arkansas.

Bergen, now a co-starter at fullback, discussed his readiness to perform at a high level. In his first two years, Bergen played primarily on the scout team after transition back and forth from middle linebacker.
