Coach John Franco's quote: "He is a very talented, a very natural runner. He works very hard at it. He is multi-talented. He is a very instinctive runner. He is a lot faster than he looks, a lot quicker than he looks. He can find the open crease, find the open hole. He does not give you a good shot at him. He does not get hit much because he moves so well into the open area. He has great moves, great instincts, a heckuva talent. He's just a great kid."
