Chris Hampton Is Ready To Lead
Question: What are your expectations for yourself heading into this season?
Answer: My expectations personally are just to do the best that I possibly can and do better than I did last year, stay healthy, and be a leader here.
Question: What can Gamecock fans expect from the secondary this season after the losses of Ko Simpson, Jon Joseph, and Tremaine Tyler from last year?
Answer: As a secondary, I think that we're still going to be real good. Coach Cooper is working with us hard, he's training us, and bringing the young guys along. I think we'll do fine as a group. We lost a few good players, but as a group, I think we can make up for the loss.
Question: After losing your top seven tacklers from last year, what are your thoughts on the defense, as a whole, heading into the 2006 season?
Answer: We still have a lot of players that played a lot last year. We lost a lot of the starters, but a lot of people were playing a lot last year. I think we'll still be fine. We have a lot of guys with talent; just young and inexperienced, but we'll still be fine.
Question: What are you looking forward to the most about the season opening contest against Mississippi State?
Answer: Just playing the SEC. Getting back out there and playing football. It's going to be on TV. It's the first game of the year and it's going to be exciting.
