There was no holding back for Hugh Freeze this spring.
That’s a risk and reward thing, but fast and physical springtime was something he felt he needed to help his team take the next step.
Nothing paints the mental picture of “physical” more than a 300-pounder running right at you.
Meet Jeremy Liggins.
The fact that Liggins spent his whole spring at quarterback underscores Freeze’s commitment to using Liggins at the position.
Not as the every-down guy. Not right now and probably not ever at 300 pounds. Weight loss is one of Freeze’s goals for Liggins this off-season.
But it’s clear that Freeze, seeking a cure for two seasons’s worth of short-yardage ailments, is intrigued by the possibilities of Liggins taking a shotgun snap and running at the line.
I think you’ll see that in the fall.
