“We had a little fight toward the end zone (Monday) and all you see is Coach (Shawn) Jefferson running over yonder full speed and making a plunge heedlessly just to split it up. His feet were noticeable all around. You can see it on film. It’s entertaining.”
I don’t comprehend what your part was in that battle, yet there were two folks attempting their hardest to keep you out of it.
So you weren’t generally part of it, yet you needed to be.

In the event that Jay ever goes down in a diversion or whatever, I’m going to be prepared and Drake’s going to be prepared.”
You took every necessary step, however, what amount do you credit Gase for boosting your breakout year?

I was dependable that person who came in, from my new kid on the block year to now, and stated, ‘Whatever you folks need me to do, I’ll do it to my completely capacity.’ He came in and saw that and began attempting new things with me. I was prepared to do it.”
Is it accurate to say that they are adding to your part, or is it increasingly an instance of endeavoring to consummate what did a year ago?
“I feel like we’re going to take that and endeavor to culminate it, yet who knows what Coach Gase has up his sleeve? He generally likes to attempt new stuff and see which folks can do certain things.
