the same thing Brian and Dom did last year. But it’s big shoes to fill. That’s the main focus, getting better and getting that trust.”

Getting the chance to play and playing well in the Sun Bowl after Jackson sat with the concussion, did that give you a lot of confidence going into the spring?

"That gave me a lot of confidence, just that I was able to show the coaches that I was ready to play and ready to step in. That gave me a lot of confidence going into the spring, getting stronger, getting faster, getting better. Now, I’m working on technique and trying to get better.”

You had one year to learn from Brian and Dom. What did you learn from them?

"I learned a lot. They taught me a lot on and off the field. I’d have to say that’s what made me, got me through the summer and the fall. They helped me out a lot once I stepped on campus. I learned the plays, how to play different techniques with different plays. I learned a lot from them.”
