He brings a very calm way of leading. A very calm veteran presence to that offensive line group and to the whole offense. He was a good leader for us as well. He’s been in a place that won a championship. He’s won a lot of football games, big time left tackle. He certainly lived up to that expectation….His mentality is great. He’s got great leadership, and he brought that here to us. It’s good to know we’re going to have him for a long time.”

    “The toughness,womens Chris Conley Jersey, it’s getting there. We definitely showed grit and resilience with the way we fought back from 0-4.
