Preseason Football Q&A: Nick Burney

Senior Nick Burney made the transition from halfback to fullback for the first time in last year's Seattle Bowl victory. He has remained at that position and looks to make an impact for the Deacs this season using his size and strength. Burney visited with WakeForestSports.com for a Q&A session after Friday morning's practice.
