Q. Coach, I wanted to ask you about a couple of Alabama natives on your roster. Talk about the development you’ve seen of his career of Logan Stenberg. I know he’s a big part of your offensive line. And as far as a young player, I know Benny Snell meant so much to your program, but Kavosiey Smoke from Wetumpka, Alabama, I wanted to know about your thoughts on his future.
MARK STOOPS: “Allen Daily as well, the wide receiver. We have high hopes for Allen as well. He is going to be a heck of a player for us.
“But Kavosiey, as I mentioned, I’m very excited to see him, see how he improves in his second year. I think he’s a dynamic guy. He’s a tough guy to tackle. And so any time you’re productive in high school in this state, you know you have a chance.
“With Logan, he’s been a solid piece of our offensive line. I think, you know, for us, the offensive line kind of sets the tone for our team, and Logan is a big piece of that. You know, you got to love him. He’s a bright guy. He’s unbelievably smart and graduated already and does amazing things off the field.
“On the field, he is nasty. And that’s what you’re looking for at the offensive guard. He’s a nasty player. He kind of sets the tone. He’s big. He’s physical. He’s been a rock for us. He’s been a big piece of it, and we’re proud to have him.”
