RP: Hi Coach Mann! How are you doing today?
DM: Doing well thanks.. how are you..
RP: Doing well! Thanks for asking! Would you mind speaking about Keenan Murphy and his recent Texas Tech offer with me?
RP: How is the recruiting process going for Keenan?
DM: Pretty good... 7 offers so far. Most recently UH. Was just invited A&M Friday night lights
RP: I understand Crosby had major success last season. What kind of impact did Keenan have in producing that success?
DM: Very big part of it.. he has started 27 games in his career protecting our qbs blind side. He graded out the highest of all the lineman.
RP: What's he like in the weight room and at practice? How does his work ethic impact his success on the field?
DM: He is the last kid (remaining) in the weight room everyday after school. Very strong, 325 bench press. In 8th grade he road his bike a long way to summer workouts. Besides natural talent his work ethic separates him from other kids.
RP: How about off the field? What's he like when he's not on the gridiron or in the weight room?
DM: Quiet kid wont hear him say a lot... not an attention seeking kid
RP: Scout.com has him at 6'3", 285 pounds. Is this correct?
DM: 6'2, 295
RP: Coach Mann, thank you for your time!
