Defensive end Ray Drew changed positions from outside linebacker in the offseason, and while there‚Äôs been a learning curve, the sophomore feels he‚Äôs improving each week.
‚ÄúWith school, football and everything altogether, everything is going great,‚Äù said Drew. ‚ÄúI feel myself getting stronger and becoming a better player.‚Äù
Drew has recorded five tackles this season and at least one each game. Still, his role ‚Äî and his playing time ‚Äî changes week-to-week.
‚ÄúThings vary from week to week,‚Äù Drew said. ‚ÄúWe look at the offense we‚Äôre going against and we install different things. We try to plan for that offense. Each week it changes, and that is the biggest challenge with learning this defense.‚Äù
A defensive end in high school at Thomas County Central, Drew sees progress in his game since making the switch from linebacker.
‚ÄúSince I‚Äôve come in, since I‚Äôve changed positions, and up to this point, I‚Äôm more comfortable with the plays and knowing what to do,‚Äù Drew said.
