Offense finds playmakers in second scrimmage

“Their experience is huge. They’ve got a lot of games under their belts, not just individually, but collectively as a unit. Playing together and the communication they have developed is huge. You know, you get a blitz off the right side and it’s got to be passed all the way down. They have to be able to communicate everything back and forth. With Tyler (Larsen) being able to recognize defenses and making the right calls, getting those guys targeted where they need to be and helping the quarterback. It’s huge to have those guys leading our ship right now.”

Heading into the season and a new conference, what will it take for the Utah State offensive to be successful?

“Coach (Matt) Wells has made the comment that we need to win the conference in camp. Out here, day 16, there are a lot of teams across the country that are tired and sore. We’re out here battling through these next two weeks and continuing to grow and get better, approaching each and every day of practice with a purpose. You get into games and everybody focuses on their job. You take it one play at a time, one series at a time. If everybody does their job, then things will take care of themselves. We’re going to focus on us, and our execution, every single week. Hopefully we’ll put a good plan together to attack each opponent's weaknesses and put our guys in good positions as a coaching staff.”
