A Q-and-A here with Senquez Golson from Wednesday’s practice. Although he missed spring drills while a new staff was installing a new defense he jumped right in with the first team at cornerback when practice began in August.
He lost the job only to win it back last week. There’s a lot of potential and athleticism with Golson if the staff can get him “coached up” and pointed in the right direction. …
Q: What do you think you did in the middle weeks to get your starting spot back?
“I just had a couple things I needed to work on technique wise and just trying to get my legs back under me.”
Q: Looking back on the game, how do you think you played?
“I did OK. I wasn’t completely satisfied with it, but you can’t complain about a win.”
Q: Has one area of your game that you’ve been trying to work on playing the ball better?
“Yeah pretty much. Instead of just trying to knock the ball down, just trying to take the ball away that is what I really have to work on. I’m tired of knocking the ball down. I’m trying to turn it around to where I can get the interception.”
Q: Are you starting to build more confidence the more plays you make?
“That’s the key in playing in this league. You are here for a reason. This is the SEC. You just have to get your confidence and play with it.”
Q: How long did it take you to get that confidence?
“It seems like once you make one play you just feed off that and just build on that. You might have once or twice where you mess up, but you just have to remember that confidence and keep going.’
Q: On where the defense feels like they are
“I think we are going pretty good. I feel like we are doing a lot better than people expected us to be and we just have to keep it rolling every week.”
Q: On baseball
“I’m fixing to go swing a bat right now. We get out of practice early on the bye weeks and I get some time to go swing it. It’s been a while since I’ve swung probably since the season ended.”
