NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Fifteen spring practices in the books, and one thing stands out, Justin McMillan adapting smoothly into the offense Will Hall is putting in for the Wave.
“Justin’s a gym rat, he loves football. He’s up there all the time. Coach Hall is a gym rat too. I think he has a good understanding of what we’re doing, but it was only 15 practices. We’re going to have 27 before our first ballgame, and there’s a lot of work we can get done in the summer too. He’s going to have better control and knowledge of the offense in a few months,” said Tulane head coach Willie Fritz.
“Our offense is built for our playmakers so. Getting a chance to get these guys the ball, and seeing what they can do with the ball. I feel good, and those guys make me comfortable,” said Tulane quarterback Justin McMillan.
“Obviously he’s supremely talented. I think that anyone who’s ever met him and knows him, knows the skillset he has is really high. The thing with him is understanding the impact he has on the people around him. When your the quarterback, everything you do every day your impacting others, more so than anyone else on the team. I think he’s starting to understand that, he’s starting to grasp that,” said offensive coordinator Will Hall.
Last season, Tulane won a ball game. So optimism is high when they kick off things this fall against Florida International on a Thursday night, August 29th.
