It seems like forever since a freshmen defensive end from Tennessee tied all freshmen defensive players in sacks. For senior Barry Turner, that's been a few pounds as well. With a new staff, though, and a new emphasis on getting to the QB, Turner has shed some pounds while the defense has added a lot of confidence. Enjoy this one-on-one as Turner talks about now and how he sees the future.

From his first year where he lit up the conference, amongst the league leaders in sacks, Barry Turner's road has since been somewhat quiet. You have to give some credit to the guy playing in front him, though. There's no shame behind playing someone who is now in the NFL. But it's Turner's time, and he's taken that to get bigger, faster, stronger and as he says, more complete in his game.

As a freshman it would be easy to say that Barry Turner wasn't ordinary. Hard to expect a person who is basically situational on defense, still ending up the year third on the team in sacks. That's the same team that led the country in that category. The surprise is over, though, and Turner goes from someone you hope, to someone you expect. Now it's him helping others adjust.

For someone of his age, he would be one of those that most would say has an uncommon maturity. Always thinking of what's ahead and never what's happened, Turner always looks to the future. Based on what he's done already in just his first year, he must see a pretty bright road ahead. But Turner remains realistic even while he's eternally optimistic. Enjoy this spring edition of 1-on-1 with the Huskers.
