On the team: I like what's going on with our football team. I think guys are coming to work, they are spirited and working hard. It's not anywhere close to where it needs to be for us to be the team we want to be but it's a good effort, and with good effort you've got a chance to make good things happen.
On Monday's stand-out players: Kenny James did good things today. Tusi Sa'au did some good things today. I'm encouraged with our tight ends, especially Ben Bandel and Jon Lyon. I think both those kids are doing nice jobs. Offensively we've got great tempo. (Greg Carothers) is doing a nice job along with Tyler Krambrink at SAM. Jimmy Newell is doing a nice job in there. Those are the names off the top of my head.
On Justin Robbins' injury: It's an MCL sprain. He's going to meet with the Sonics' team surgeon tomorrow just to get another opinion to see what needs to be done, if anything. An MCL sprain is something that you just end up resting. He's probably gone for spring.
On the walk-on receivers: I think they are all good kids. We'll have to wait and see if any of them are going to earn time in the fall.
On the emergence of safety BJ Newberry: He runs well and is a strong kid. When a new coach (Cornell Jackson) comes in and looks at the numbers of what a kid can do, often times a kid can get more of a look. BJ is getting that kind of an opportunity.
