QUOTES

“He’s been such a utility guy since we’ve been here; he’s so valuable to our program. He’s on every special teams, he can work at Z, he can work at H, he can work at P — he can work all those places. So that makes him so valuable. Some guys can only play one or two positions, he can play them all. So he’ll be a guy that will rotate in there, and he’ll be a guy that will go into any position that I need him to go into.” (8/18/10)

Zach Azzanni, UF Wide Receivers Coach

 

“He’s doing a nice job. There’s a chance he’ll get in the mix at receiver real soon. The first thing you really do before you get involved in the offense is make a play on special teams and he made two tackles Saturday. He’s getting a lot better. He’s one of the most improved guys right now.” (10/31/07)

Urban Meyer, UF Head Coach
