Bryant admits he got a "little wild" but vows to get better over the summer

CLEMSON- Kelly Bryant had a difficult spring game to start off the 2018 season.
As the only quarterback in the game without a touchdown, two sacks, and only 35 passing yards, Bryant ended spring season on a rough note. That doesn’t seem to bother Bryant however.
He has a plan.
“Just want to get better no matter what it is,” Bryant said after the game. “Every day I work and try to find one thing to get better at, footwork, being a little more technical with my mechanics, or just getting in film sessions. Just trying to get a little better every day.”
Quarterbacks in the game were not live – meaning they couldn’t be hit – and could be sacked just by being touched by a defensive player. Bryant was considered to be sacked twice. Sacks were called on all four quarterbacks throughout the game multiple times, which had Bryant feeling a little out of his element.
“Yeah, a little, the tough part about being the quarterback we can make plays with our legs so that opens up the offense a little bit more and it allows us to adjust. There may be some situations where we aren’t allowed to use our legs,” he said.
Bryant says he isn’t going to let the discouraging day distract him from his long-term goals.
“I feel like it’s a work in progress. Of course, there are areas that I want to be better in, I’m not satisfied, and I’m never going to be satisfied, I’m going to continue to work and push, and try and be a better quarterback,” Bryant said,
“It’s been good. Competition of course on the field. Off the field it’s been really good, we’re all learning, and we’re all really supportive of each other. They are supportive of me I’m supportive of them,” Bryant said. “I’m the only senior in the room, so I’m just trying to take them under my wing. But it’s really good to see everyone grow from the beginning of spring ball to now.”
Being an experienced senior and having big game wins like the ACC Championship against Miami and Auburn and Virgina Tech under his belt, Bryant knows he can’t let the spring game hold him back.
“Yeah, I just got a little excited, it was just simple, easy throws and I went a little wild on them, but I’ve just got to get better at that. I’m just going to take that and watch a little bit of film, and see what I did good and see what I did bad,” he said.
