: I’m very comfortable. It’s obviously pretty tough when you lose as many guys as we have. Experience is something you really can’t coach. For us, it’s going to be an interesting spring, but I’m very excited about the young talent we have, and the guys we continue to recruit and who come in year in and year out. That’s why we do recruit, is to replace those guys. It’s going to be interesting to see who accepts that role and steps up.

How do you feel your role is going to change?

DF: I feel like this year I’m going to have to be a lot more of a coach on the field. In the years past, we’ve had a lot of experienced guys and I’d always kind of been the younger guy. We were very comfortable, didn’t have to make as many calls, knew what each other was thinking. Now I think I’m really going to have to spell everything out just because of the experience factor. They’re not going to be used to playing in front of people, with the crowd noise, things like that. That’s not a bad thing, because it keeps me on my toes and I’ll be constantly reminded of what I need to do. I’ll be able to get everybody on the same page.
