What They Are Saying About Darryl Gresham Jr.

“He’s got a long way to go to make him a player. He has the ability to do that. The key for him is to get stronger, it’s going to take a lot of hard work. It’s a whole different deal than being a linebacker. He needs to get stronger, faster – believe it or not he needs to get a lot quicker – but he did show signs.” (July 2006)
Greg Mattison, UF Co-Defensive Coordinator and Defensive Line Coach
