John Hevesy discuss the improvement in fundamentals in the offensive line. There are about three or four guys who have made it to bowl games, but this is only their second spring. Hevesy says they are seeing valuable reps and line reps and understanding the film.

He addresses the consequences of not having camp last spring and starting from scratch in fall. "It's them screwing it up or doing it well," Hevesy said about players comparing themselves to veterans like Stone Forsythe.

Kingsley is getting a lot of reps at center. Hevesy is evaluating which four he can throw out on the field come game time. Edgar Thompson may be one if he can put a little weight on him.

He said it's beneficial for Reese and the team to come back for another season.

Hevesy said that the guys have to have amnesia out there. Bad plays will happen, but you can not let it linger, he says. He does not want to see a bad play get the better of them. "Forget about it. Get up and go again," he added.

Stewart at center, Ethan at guard, and Josh at guard. They are pretty big. You can move guys and learn to be physical all the time. "Use that force and power that you have," he added.

The guys have worked hard to get here. They are meticulous. So, it's all about fine-tuning things. Returning guys is valuable they can teach the new players what the reality of playing in the Swamp is like, he says.

Hevesy talks about Dan and his secret to working with quarterbacks. He evaluates what all the guys can do and move the offense around them. So that they can find success in their own way. What does Emory do well? After spring, we will evaluate that.

Christian Robinson also spoke with media today. He says he was excited to get Ventrell back. He had a great offseason last year, and I thought he performed really well. He's a driven guy who wants to do more, I talk to him all the time about the #51 jersey. He can share some of that glory and leadership of the guy the came before him.

Even if Ventrell isn't in the play, you can hear him talking. "he's got unfinished business," Robinson adds.

When David Reese left, that gave Ventrell a leadership spot. We have a lot of young DBs just trying to figure out what the Gator Standard means to them.

Robinson was prepared to come out of quarantine at some point. One day, we are going to go back to the field. They needed to be ready for that.

Ty'Ron Hopper and Derek Wingo have developed well and it's been excited, Robinson mentions. He sees them becoming more knowledge of game situations. They see the holes in what they did not have in spring. The development is allowing the reps that they need. That is what the missed last spring that will make the biggest difference.

Leadership as a group is what's important. The linebackers are the center of the locker room. We have guys who just got here fresh out of high school. They are doing things they did in high school, who now need to learn how to play college ball. Guys like Ventrell will go out there and put there arms on their shoulders and show them what they need to do,

Robinson talks about Mullen letting Montinar come to Florida. Both the new coaches have been really exciting. I get to work with the front and the back end.

Robinson talks about Mohamoud how he has his own unique personality. He tells that Mohamoud would sit down with him and ask what his goals are for the line and for himself. He's a learner. He made mistakes last year. There are young DBs who are listening to a guy who has experienced failure but worked his way back to play in an SEC Championship.
