Morris Trophy winner and respect of his head coach
He makes play after play, and does so at a comfort level which makes it seem all too easy for the bystander. But he doesn’t do so nonchalantly. He buries himself in the upcoming game, following video analysis and then training in the needs for his next opponent. He does not shy away from the hard work, but uses each new challenge to set an even higher bar for himself.
He’s been accumulating a solid reputation over the course of his NCAA career. Even as a sophomore, many feared that he might enter the 2017 NFL Draft. But he returned for his third season, and that may have propelled him into a top-10 position in the upcoming 2018 NFL Draft. His head coach, Chris Petersen, certainly believes he is deserving.
And Coach Petersen does not waste nor mince words.
