Quick Hits With James Thompson
Question: Do you have any goals for the upcoming season?
Answer: Right now my goal is to help the offensive line the best I can. We had a pretty good summer, and I feel that we've improved a lot. Right now I'm just trying to help my teammates have a better year this year.
Question: How did the summer workouts go for you?
Answer: I started off a little rough, but at the end, I feel like I finished strong.
Question: Do you believe that this year's offensive line could be better than last season?
Answer: I feel that we can be better than last year, because we work harder as a group. I just feel that we're a lot more together, and we're going to get the job done this year.
Question: What are your expectations for the offense, as a whole, this season?
Answer: For the offense, I feel like with Cory Boyd coming back this year, I feel that he'll help us out a lot. I feel like our receivers are going to do a good job, and Blake (Mitchell) is comfortable with the offense, and he's going to do an excellent job this year as well.
Question: Is the offensive line more comfortable now that you are in your second year under Offensive Line Coach John Hunt?
Answer: Coach Hunt is a good coach. He knows everything on offense. He knows what the receivers are supposed to do. He knows everything. It's his second year here, and I feel that the offensive line is going to be more comfortable than we were last year. This is our second year in the offense, and we'll be more experienced. I just feel that we're going to have a good year this year.
