LSU Offensive Player Quotes from Media Day

Posted: Updated:

The following are quotes from LSU offensive players from media day here Tuesday.

 

QB Zach Mettenberger

On wide receivers …

"We are going to try to do different stuff on offense this year. Going out there every day with the talent that we have is definitely an ease for me at quarterback. I can't be on target and they can still make a catch for me."

 

On throwing the ball more …

"I do not think it is just because of my abilities. They are confident in the receivers we have and the backs to catch the ball. We have a very veteran offensive line who we know will protect me and I think that is the biggest key of us throwing the ball this year."

 

On being the defined starter …

"It helps for a team big time. They do not have to worry about who is going to be in the next series. Just have one definitive starter is going to be really big for this team. Hopefully, I can just go out there and lead this team and get the ball to the play makers."

 

WR Russell Shepard

On throwing the ball more …

"We are working to it. That is what this camp has had a big focus on. We started this spring. The thing was to become a balanced team. Let's throw it 30 and run it 30. It is all the same thing, balance is balance. We feel like we have all of the pieces to do it and we are ready."

 

On losing Rueben Randle …

"We have to come together as a group to replace him. We have to really come together and make each other better. That includes being competitive, watching a lot of film, and everyone being accountable for each other. We feel that if we can come together and do our part as a receiving core, we can make up for losing a great weapon like Rueben."

 

On being more aggressive with Mettenberger as quarterback …

"One thing about Zach is that although he has not played in many games, he is still not a young guy. He has been in college football going on four years. He knows the game. He is very intelligent, and I think he brings a confidence to that position. That is something that we feed off of."

 

WR Odell Beckham Jr.

On being a stand out player …

"Honestly you cannot say I'm that guy with the receiving corps we have, anyone can be that guy. This summer we all just worked on getting better each and every day and improving on little things. I feel we are going to have a strong season this year."

 

On Mettenberger's confidence …

"It is honestly just the way he is. He has that arm strength and knows that he can make those throws. He is a risk taker. He will throw those balls and trust us to make plays."
