Oklahoma football: Receiver Trey Metoyer says he learned from subpar 2012 season

by Jason Kersey Published: April 8, 2013

I don't see any pressure at all. The only pressure is to go out and do my job. I feel like I was in this situation in high school. I was one of the best receivers coming out and then I had an issue. I feel like I'm in the same position. I just have to compete.

What has position coach Jay Norvell asked of you this spring?

Coach doesn't ask for too much, because he knows what I'm capable of. He just tells me to get there. Work hard and keep working and that's what I try to do.

Practice makes perfect and that's what he preaches to me all the time. I try to go to practice with a different mindset than I did last year; I'm trying to be more focused and trying to get better.

How do you feel your time at Hargrave helped you?

Going to Hargrave, I can say I got more patient. I wanted to come here right away, and couldn't. Had to go through some things to get here, you know, waited. It made me a better person. I told myself after I left Hargrave that I wasn't gonna have no more setbacks. That was it. Not playing last year kinda hurt me, but this year, you're gonna see a whole nother me.
