When I went up there, you can undoubtedly see the tradition they are constructing and things like that. Me and Coach Z (Jim Zebrowski, quarterbacks), me and him are the identical particular person. We received along seriously perfectly when I went up there for my check out. We clicked immediately. Then Mentor Leipold (Lance Leipold, head mentor), the head mentor, he’s just one of the fastest head coaches in higher education football historical past to 100 wins. That coaching workers isn’t utilised to shedding. That is a person of the factors that I like.

I consider he doesn’t try to modify into a person, a quarterback into who they’re not. He just lets them play their sport. Jalon Daniels, I look at him participate in. I feel me and him form of perform the identical way. He’s a playmaker. I feel which is what I am much too. He’s not likely to adjust any mechanics, he’s just going to educate me the offense. When it is my change to play, he’s likely to place the plays in that most effective healthy me. He’s not likely to transform everything I do or anything like that.”
