Q & A with #22 – Tashard Choice – RB

On personal goals for spring practice:
“I want to understand the new plays, the new offense. I just want to understand what everyone is doing on the field so that I can lead the team. I want to be more of a leader, vocal and on the field.”

On chemistry with other guys on offense:
“We lost some great players like Calvin (Johnson) but we have some good players stepping in to fill those spots. Taylor (Bennett) is such a smart quarterback, he has played there for us and understands the offense, he is a leader out there and gives us a chance to win every time out there. Practice just allows us to get used to each other on the field. Spring ball lets you see everyone on the field and just lets you create some chemistry.”

On following up last seasons rushing performance:
“Just try to be to the best, I will try and be the leading rusher in the nation next. My goals are high because I believe everyone is going to count on me and I want to be the kind of person that comes through when it counts. I practice hard and work hard in the off-season to be the best back I could be.”

On what the team can take from the Toyota Gator Bowl showing:
“The last few games of last season, we only lost by a couple of points. This year we got to work really hard at doing the little things because when it counts we have to win those games. When we go out and practice, we just know we can compete with anyone in the nation.”

On new offensive coordinator John Bond:
“It has been great; Coach Bond understands the offense and gets the ball into the playmakers hands. The plays, we have and the plays he has drawn up and the little things we do such as keeping our offense up tempo. He wants the offense to be great and excel and score points on the field.”

On next season goals:
“I have personal goals but my main goals are to win the ACC tournament and then to reach New Orleans for the National Championship game. My goals will be reached if we win because that is all I want, I just want to win.”
