HEARD

>> “This camp’s probably been the roughest, the most challenging, that I’ve been through since I’ve been here.” — senior defensive end Jason Ankrah

HEARD

>> “We’re still pretty fresh, because we’ve cold-tubbed every day, and that’s helped out a lot. I think everybody looks pretty good, especially on the field and stuff. We’re a little sore in the beginning during stretching, but once we get going, our bodies feel pretty good.” — quarterback Taylor Martinez on the team’s conditioning

HEARD

>> “I have huge input on the offense. If I don’t like this play, we throw it out. I can say whatever I want to say, and Coach Beck will say, ‘OK, well maybe you should try this, or we can install this or that.’ There’s a lot of freedom for me and the rest of the guys.” — Martinez, on his influence on the offense.

—Sam McKewon and Jon Nyatawa
