”I just been really proud of our coaches and players. Defensively it got better in the last week and man they flew today, they didn’t run they flew. Rams took flight and they really got after us offensively which is great to see and so I think the adjustment period is officially over which is good and it gives us confidence going into the fall. Jaree and Zo both played as freshmen last year and were just kind of green out there and they’re just starting to mature and to really understand the little things in the defense” said Giardina.

“Everybody was on point today, everybody was in the right spot. Best in the nation. Number one corner in the nation” said Sophomore cornerback, Jaree Turner.
