HE LOST HIS FATHER WAS A

TEENAGER.

WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED ABOUT

THIS GUY AND HOW WILL HE FIT IN

THE ETHOS OF THE PROGRAM?

>> YOU TALK ABOUT IT FIRST

CLASS INDIVIDUAL.

HIS MOM DOESN'T AWESOME JOB TO

TEACH CHARACTER TO HIM.

HE'S A GOOD FOOTBALL PLAYER AND

GREAT FIT WITH PASSION FOR

IMPROVEMENT AND A FISCAL RUNNER

AND GOOD SIZE AND GET INTO THE

WEIGHT ROOM AND A FORCE IN THIS

CONFERENCE.

IN REFERENCE TO SOME OF THE

GUYS I FIGURED THE LAST FEW

DAYS WERE ON TRANSFER.

THE PORTAL ITSELF HAS CREATED

CONVERSATION NATIONALLY AROUND

COLLEGE FOOTBALL ON YOUR

PROGRAM MAY BE DOING THE BEST

JOB DIPPING INTO THE PORTAL

MAKING SURE YOU GET GOOD GUYS

AS WELL AND HOW DO YOU EVALUATE

THE PLAYERS AND FIGURE OUT WHO

IS A RIGHT FIT WHEN GUYS HAVE

COLLEGE EXPERIENCE.

>> IT IS INTERESTING BECAUSE WE

JUST WANT TO USE EVERY AVENUE

WE CAN TO ADD TO THIS AREA AND

SOME OF THE GUYS WE'VE BEEN

ABLE TO GET HAD PREVIOUS

RELATIONSHIPS THROUGH COACHES

WHEN THEY WERE GETTING RECRUITED

WE DO BACKGROUND AND HOMEWORK

AND NOT EVERYONE IS A FIT AND

YOU HAVE TO DO A TON OF

HOMEWORK.

ONCE THEY ARE ON THEIR WE CHASE

ALL AVENUES.

>> SOME OF THE GUYS THAT MAY BE

CHASING RECEIVERS.

I LOVE YOUR JC SECONDARY.

I KNOW YOU RETURN SOME PLAYERS

THERE BUT ALL FOR I FEEL I

COULD PLAY. WHAT DO YOU THINK

ABOUT THEIR SKILL SET IN THEIR

OPPORTUNITY TO IMPACT EARLY ON

DEFENSE.

>> NO QUESTION.

WE WANTED TO GET LONGER AND WE

WANTED TO GO TO AN OLDER PLAYER

AND RAY JEAN JONATHAN RILEY'S

SAFETY. THEY HAVE LINKS AND WE

WANT TO MAKE IT MORE

COMPETITIVE.

WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT ALTON

JULIE.

WE ARE NOT JUST TALKING ABOUT A

JUNIOR PLAYER OUT OF JUNIOR

COLLEGE.

WE'VE ADDED DEPTH AND ALL THREE

OF THOSE GUYS WILL HAVE AN

OPPORTUNITY TO BE RIGHT AWAY.

>> COACH I REMEMBER WALKING UP

THE PRACTICE FIELD AND YOU MADE

REFERENCE TO THE TEAMS DEFENSE.

YOU SAID THESE GUYS JUST HAVE

TO COME UP WITH SOME SPOTS IN

THE LAST TWO SEASONS YOU'VE HAD

SOME GROWTH HERE. THEY ASKED

YOU ABOUT THE SECONDARY AND

YOUR TEAMS DEFENSE HOW

CONFIDENT YOU FEEL THERE IS

ANOTHER BIG TIME JUMP BASED ON

WHAT WE SAW IT LAST YEAR?

>> WE NEED TO MAKE THAT JUMP

AND WE HAVE A LOT OF PLAYERS

ESPECIALLY UP FRONT COMING BACK

AND I FEEL AWESOME ABOUT THIS

COACHING STAFF AND OUR PLAYERS

EFFORTS IN REGARDS TO WORK

ETHIC AND THEY WILL IMPROVE AND

THAT SOME OF THE RECENTLY WHEN

AND WE FELT CONFIDENT WITH WHAT

WE HAVE COMING BACK IN THE

FRONT SEVEN AND WE GET THAT

BACK PLAYING AND A HIGHER LEVEL

WE COULD BE A GOOD DEFENSE.

TALKING ABOUT THIS TEAM IF

DEFENSE IMPROVES OFFENSIVELY

YOU'VE BEEN SUCCESSFUL THERE

AND WITHIN THE CURRENT ROSTER,

MARK JEFFERSON HE'S A FRESHMAN

ALL-AMERICAN, BANGED UP.

HOW HAS HIS OFF-SEASON BEEN AND

WHAT IS THE STATUS AND OF

COURSE THE LOAD AND SPRING AND

THE FALL.

>> WE ARE COUNTING ON THEM IN A

BIG WAY.

HE DEALT WITH THINGS THE SECOND

YEAR INJURY WISE.

HE'S BEEN WORKING OUT AND

FEELING BETTER BUT WE NEED HIM

TO HAVE THE BIG YEAR WE THINK

HE CAN.

WE ARE LOSING PRODUCTION

OFFENSIVELY AND WITH JAMAR

COMING BACK IN THIS GAME WE RUN

WE CAN FEATURE HIM.

WE HOPE TO SEE THAT.

>> COACH YOU JUST MENTIONED

THAT HODGINS IS ONE OF THE WIDE

RECEIVERS. YOU LOSE HIM.

IN TERMS OF THE REPLACEMENT

PLAYMAKERS ORGAN STATE HAS HAD A

GOOD TRADITION OF WIDE

RECEIVERS AND WHO IS THE NEXT

WAVE.

>> WE ARE COMPETING FOR THAT IN

THE SPRING.

TRE BROWN BRADFORD GETS AN

ADDITIONAL YEAR.

RICHARDS LAST YEAR WILL BE

COUNTED ON BIG.

TED JOHN LINDSEY, COLBY TAYLOR,

WE HAVE A GROUP IN THEIR THAT

WE FEEL GOOD ABOUT. YOU ARE

RIGHT.

WE HAVE TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT

REPLACING BECAUSE HODGES WAS SO

GOOD AND PRODUCTIVE IN THE RED

ZONE.

>> DID COACH JUST MAKE

REFERENCE TO THE CHAMP OR DID

HE NOT SAY HIS NAME?

THE CHAMP IS BACK TOO.

I MIGHT BE A HALF INCH TALLER

THAN HIM AND HE IS MY HERO,

JUST TO BE CLEAR.

DO NOT FORGET ABOUT MY GUY

CHAMP.

>> HE IS A FAN FAVORITE HERE.

>> I LOVE THAT.

COACH TAKE US INTO THE COACHING

STAFF RIGHT NOW.

LAST YEAR THERE WERE SO MANY

TYPE WEATHERTIGHT GAMES.

TWO YOUR FIRST YEAR LAST YEAR

YOU HAD A HANDFUL OF TIGHT

ONES.

HOW ARE YOU SURE UP ALL SEASON

PROGRAMS.

A MINDSET OF CLOSING THINGS OUT

IN YOUR OPINION.

>> YOU HAVE TO TALK ABOUT

FINISH AND WE GOT INTO THE

SPECIFICS AFTER BEING ABLE TO

DIGEST THE SEASON.

WE HAD MULTIPLE GAMES THAT CAN

BE DOWN TO ONE POSSESSION

WHETHER IT'S BEING ABLE TO

FINISH ON THE FIELD OR FLIP

SIDE TO MINUTE AND BE ABLE TO

GET SOME STOPS.

THAT WOULD BE A POINT OF

OFFENSES AND PUTTING THOSE GUYS

IN THOSE SITUATIONS MORE AND RE-

CREATING THE GAME FOR THEM.

WE CAN TAKE THAT NEXT STEP WE

FEEL GOOD ABOUT OUR CHANCES

THIS FALL.

IT WAS AN ABSOLUTE JOY TO WATCH

YOUR FOOTBALL TEAM CLOSE THE

GAP AND IMPROVE. YOU HAD US ON

THE EDGE OF OUR SEATS AND IN

THESE GAMES REASSURE YOU WOULD

PREFER TO BE ON THE OTHER END OF

THE CLOSE ONES.

BEST OF LUCK THIS OFF SEASON.

ENJOY SOME DOWN TIME AND WE WILL

SEE YOU IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS.

>> APPRECIATED, GUYS.

>>> JOHN SMITH.

YOU CAN SEE THE EXCITEMENT

AROUND THIS PROGRAM.
