Me and Landon were in the weight room all summer with the other guys, and I feel like I've gotten stronger and faster. I've put on a little weight, so hopefully I'll be a little stronger, and I'm excited about that.
At 6-foot-3 and nearly 200 pounds, you run hard, and you were never afraid of contact. Does that mentality change now that you're alone at quarterback?
The last two years, I've played free safety, and I probably won't be doing that this year, so I think the coaches want me to stay away from contact more than I have in the past. But I still enjoy it. I'll probably have to be a little leery. But at the same time, that's my favorite part of football, so I can't shy away from it too much, or I'll get away from who I am. But I know I have to be careful.
