What other changes have you seen since Spring without the coaches?
“I think it’s forced us as players to take more ownership. Which I think has been really good. We’ve taken initiative. We’re having to call the play, we’re having to make audibles and checks and everything else. As a whole it has caused us to learn the offense really well, so we can go out and make calls and make plays.”
What are your expectations for the offense this year?
“I have really high expectations. We have the potential to (be great). We had some moments where we were really good this last spring, and we were playing a pretty good defense too. That’s the expectation, and I expect our offense to be back to where BYU usually is.”
How’s the offseason been different knowing that you’re the guy?
“It’s created some unique challenges and unique opportunities. It’s different going into a season named the starter. I have had the opportunity to take more of a leadership role as the quarterback and that’s been fun.”
How much has it been emphasized to you to stay injury free?
“It’s been emphasized daily. I had a conversation with coach Anae, I don’t know if he was joking, but I hope he was joking. He said, ‘If you don’t slide in a game I am going to pull you out.’ I think that’s one of the things that I’ve learned most from my injury is I need to play smarter in the shots that I take.”
