Bootleg Video: Michael Okwo

If you saw Wednesday's scrimmage, you were treated to a paramount performance by junior inside linebacker Michael Okwo. He is quick to the ball and hits as hard as anyone. Okwo indeed is the force responsible for one concussion in this camp. Previously a special teams standout, he is now a starter and budding star for this defense. Hear what he has to say about the adjustment, his quickness and who makes him look good on defense.

Okwo talks with The Bootleg about the changes for him both mentally and physically in his first fall camp as a full-time starter.  As exciting a player as the six-foot rocket has been the last two years on special teams, he says that he has made real improvements in his quickness just these last few months.  You have heard the praise from both Walt Harris and Tom Hayes for Okwo this fall; now hear what the junior inside linebacker has to say about himself and this Stanford defense.
