Clemson redshirt sophomore Adam Choice hopes that the 2016 season will filled with memorable moments as he is one of several talented running backs that Clemson has at their disposal.
Choice spoke to reporters on Thursday night and discussed his long recovery from his torn ACL that he suffered back in 2014.
"The spring was definitely a grind getting back into the flow of things and the tempo of the game, but now that I have been through it and I have reacclimated myself I feel really good," Choice said. "The knee feels great. I haven't thought much about it at all. It's been just as good as it has ever been. It's been a long process but I feel I'm back."
Choice said the running back group is talented as a whole with Wayne Gallman, Tavien Feaster, Tyshon Dye, C.J. Fuller, and others.
"We got some dogs right there," Choice said. "Everybody wants the job. Everybody is competing hard. We are pushing each other so it's going to be a long training camp and we will see how it goes. Everybody is competing hard. Like I said everybody wants it so we are pushing each to get better."
Choice was asked about his first impression of Feaster through the first few days of Fall practice.
"He's going to be a great player," Choice said. "Right now he is making strides I can tell you that much."
Choice knows that he can always work harder on improving his overall game besides just running the football.
"I definitely know that I always need to get better at pass protection, pass catching, ball security," Choice said. "I believe I can work on every area of my game. I don't feel complacent in any area. I am always striving to get better at every way."
During his freshman campaign, Choice was impressive rushing for 218 yards on 50 carries along with nine receptions for 90 yards in only 130 snaps during six games before he suffered a season-ending torn ACL at Boston College.
