Quick Hits With Tommy Beecher
GamecockAnthem.com spoke with Beecher following Saturday's scrimmage, and the young signal caller shared his thoughts on a variety of topics:
Question: How would you say the offense is clicking as a unit so far this spring?
Answer: As usual, the defense did better in the first scrimmage… We're getting more comfortable out there. That's what we're trying to do everyday. With more scrimmages, the offense will come around.
Question: You got to run with the first team offense a little in Saturday's scrimmage. How was the competition out there?
Answer: Yeah, competition is always hard out here with the first string defense, but it's always a challenge, and I'm always looking forward to it.
Question: What are your impressions of new wide receiver Larry Freeman?
Answer: Larry looks great. I'll tell you what, he's a strong, physical receiver out there. He'll be good for us. Losing Sidney (Rice), we need a guy to replace him, and he looks good so far. I like him a lot.
Question: How much would you say Jared Cook has progressed since last season?
Answer: I'll tell you what, he's one of the hardest workers on the team in the weight room and on the field, and it shows. I think he's the second fastest player on the team now, so he's a great target.
Question: Have you set any goals for yourself this spring?
Answer: Well, my goal is to just help the team in any way I can. I'm a holder right now and back up long snapper and then I'm still battling for that number two spot at quarterback.
