Koenig said he misses fishing the most about Florida.

“I love fishing down there,” Koenig said. “Saltwater fishing. It is inshore fishing. I don’t do very much offshore fishing. It’s usually inshore around islands and the river and stuff like that. They’re called passes; it’s like open water between the islands.”

CENTER COMMUNICATION KEY

The Cowboys are in the market for a center, having lost Jake Jenkins and Travis Cross to early graduation. Sophomore Paul Lewis is the frontrunner for the job.

“We’ve got several guys we think can fill that spot,” offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich said. “You gotta try to evaluate who can snap it the best and who can make the calls. It’s a critical piece of the offensive line. He’s gotta be a really good leader and a really good communicator.

“It starts with the center; can he communicate to the guard? I don’t know if the center to guard communication is more important than the guard to tackle and vice versa. I think it goes back and forth. I think O-line communication, it’s all relative. The right tackle can affect the right guard, and the center can affect the left guard and so forth. All five need to be tied in and speaking the same language.”
