first_img Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailLOGAN, Utah-Monday, Utah State football head coach Gary Andersen, junior quarterback Jordan Love and senior defensive tackle Devon Anderson addressed the media ahead of this Friday’s season opener at Wake Forest.Andersen called fall camp “a positive” and cited the bonding that occurred on his team because of it.He called the Demon Deacons “an explosive offense” and called their redshirt junior quarterback, Jamie Newman, “a talented quarterback.”Concerning senior defensive back DJ Williams’ move from nickel to corner, he cited the fact that Wake Forest often plays with three to four receivers, so he wants to give as many Aggies cornerbacks reps as is possible.Andersen also said wide receiver was the toughest position to determine starters for in fall camp. He also wants to wear out opponents with the Aggies’ no-huddle offense he plans to employ throughout the season.He also spoke highly of Demon Deacons senior defensive back Essang Bassey, saying he has “great reactive skills” and likely has a long career ahead of him beyond college football.Love called fall camp “a really good camp” and said the last Wake Forest game, a 46-10 Aggies loss at Winston-Salem, N.C. in 2017, was a tough experience for him.Love also confirmed he still gets butterflies before games because of how the excitement builds up for him.Anderson said it was difficult learning a new defense, but said that scheme-wise it is a better defense for the Aggies to play.Anderson said he respects Newman’s size (as he is 6-4 and 230 pounds) and lauded him for not being “scared of contact.”In closing, Anderson said it is unreal to think of himself as a senior and the Baltimore native appreciates the opportunities Utah State has afforded him Tags: Devon Anderson/Essang Bassey/Gary Andersen/Jamie Newman/Jordan Love/USU Football/Wake Forest Demon Deacons August 26, 2019 /Sports News – Local USU Football Addresses Media Prior To Friday’s Game At Wake Forest Brad Jameslast_img read more
