((GEORGE WELSH/UVA HEAD COACH: I THINK HE'S A VERY GOOD ATHLETE THAT WAS NOT MAYBE QUITE SUITED FOR TIGHT END FOR THEM WHEN HE WENT THERE. YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN YOU SWITCH SOMEBODY LIKE THAT IF THEY'RE GONNA WORK OUT OR NOT. BUT I THINK HE'S A GOOD ATHLETE, HE'S A HARD WORKER AND HE GOES 100 PERCENT ALL THE TIME.)) ((NOEL LAMONTAGNE/UVA OFFENSIVE LINEMAN: HE'S REAL AGGRESSIVE AND HE PLAYS HARD AND HE DOESN'T GIVE UP AND YOU JUST HAVE TO WATCH HIM AND YOU JUST HAVE TO STUDY SOME FILM ON HIM AND BE READY TO GO AND JUST STAY IN FRONT OF HIM AND JUST DO WHAT YOU CAN.))
