via Jacob Roberts (YouTube) We’re currently in January 2021. With the season starting in February, what has been the biggest adjustment, regarding preparation, both as a team and individually?
As a team, the biggest adjustment was not competing against the offense to make each other better than we are now because of the number of people that the law allows us to practice. As an individual, things haven’t been really different. I’ve just been keeping on top of everything and staying ready to play in the Spring.
Coming off an impressive freshman year where you earned numerous postseason accolades, what are your personal expectations and goals for your Sophomore campaign?
My goal is to put my team in the best position to compete and win a championship. Individually, my goal is to get better each and everyday on and off the field.
