He is a natural-born leader, he’s definitely been planning for that for a long time.”You can tell from what kind of person he is that he’s a leader, he’s been doing it for a long time and he’s excited about the opportunity. We definitely want to keep him excited and never want to, you know, have him lose that faith in himself. He’s definitely ready and eager to get the season started to prove to everybody what he can do.”
