▪ What they’re saying: “He’s really strong and (the game is) slowing down for him so he can play a little faster. He’s showing development and his improvement has always been up. Being a senior, we’re counting on him. I’d like to see him accelerate a little quicker, make bigger leaps, make big steps – and we need to see that the rest of the camp.” DL coach Pete Germano
▪ Louis on 2015 outlook: “In the spring I was still being hesitant, and now that I have the full playbook down, I’m playing fast, playing physical and I’m giving all out on the field. Just put it on film … every guy just buy into it. If they see me doing it, the younger guys … see me doing good, it’s contagious. They’re going to pick it up and still continue to do it also.”
