He's a hard guy to throw over on the perimeter ... He runs fast, he makes up ground. There have been a number of plays where receivers get behind him, but he's able to run them down, still get his hands on the ball.
I would say just based on my experience as a coach through the years that most basketball players, most have good hands ... They have to handle the ball a lot. The ball is on them quick, tight passes and handling the ball in traffic and that kind of thing.
I think Tavon made a lot of progress over the course of the season. He’s a solid guy who early in the year had to make some adjustments, like all rookies do ... But he’s mature, hard-working, a tough kid that has good size; he’s physical. He played well for us in a number of situations, both close to the line, in the kicking game, and at times in the deep part of the field. He got his hands on some balls, had a few interceptions. He’s an instinctive player and we feel good about his future here.More quotes »
