" If you were building a football player, would you build Michael Burton," Flood said. " You'd love to build a hundred of him, because everything he does, he does it to the best of his ability. Tremendous work ethic. Really smart football player. Has always been a great leader by example and now he's grown into being a little bit more of a vocal leader as he's gotten older in the program. He's got a tremendous skill set for a fullback."
Burton played a big role in the 41-38 Rutgers victory over Washington State. He broke down the win, Flood's compliments and the focus on Howard.
