But there's nothing relative to the following.
He was asked to do it all.
He was expected to do it all.
The O needed him to do it all.
And he never flinched and he never backed down.
I want that kind of guy on my team any time, every time, all the time.
He was best option. Not reasonable to have qb do that much hard running and to be flawless in pass game.
Again, he shouldered too much of the load.....and he thought he was coming to school to be a TE.....pretty selfless.
He has all the tools and will probably develop into a decent nfl qb with right coaching up.
We were a definite losing team this year without LT.
"It’s tough to run 25 power rushes right up the gut and run over some linebackers and then have to get in the huddle and hear Loeffler’s pretty complex offense and go through reads, and all of a sudden be a finesse touch passer and everything." - Willie Byrne
If you have to be the team's best running back, how can you go through all of that punishment and still be expected to be surgical with your throws?

I think the coaches could've found a high school QB in 2012 who would've given the team a better chance to win in 2013 than it had, so I don't believe he was the best option before the last signing period ended. LT has always sounded confident during interviews but his performance never really matched up. He seems humble but you'd have to be very stupid to go on TV and not want to give your absolute best speech. He was willing to let his own play determine games for VT even though he never played the position in the past... We saw his absolute best this season and it wasn't that good, so he never really cared too much about the fans... I think he is too brash and a longshot at best to make an NFL roster...
