Leftwich Is Making A Push

Word circulating around the Jaguars as training camp approaches is that the players working out in Jacksonville are extremely impressed with the makeup of rookie quarterback Byron Leftwich. Citing his personable attitude and physical skills, Leftwich has spent basically every waking moment studying and working out at the Jaguars practice facility.


"Leftwich has been here from the very beginning, learning everything he can, and has been very productive in his approach to the game," a team coach said. "Byron (Leftwich) is going to be as good as he wants to be, it will be up to us (organization) to ensure that he has the tools and talent surrounding him to become one of the very best in game."

"That may put some pressure on the kid, but I haven't been around a kid at this stage that is as mature as Byron. He has already improve ten-fold in our camps thus far, he will hit some bumps in the road, but we got the player that we wanted."
