In the second week of fall practice, MGoBlue.com sat down with junior attackman Will Meter for a quick question-and-answer session.
Will, you've been here for three years now, talk about how this year is different ...
This year is different, being in a leadership role on the team, being one of the older guys and getting to experience what some of the older guys before me had to experience. Other than that, we still have a big freshman class so it is important that we lead those guys. We need to do everything we can to show them the way, and so far they have adjusted -- everyone's working hard.
You mentioned a lot of freshmen coming in. Who are some of the guys that you're looking forward to playing with on attack this year?
I am playing in practice with Ian King, he has been doing very well as he is starting to get adjusted to it. I know we don't really have any terminology or anything at this point in fall ball, but he's starting to get adjusted to the play at this level with some of the things we have been working on. Andrew Roswell is also doing a really good job. He is also one of my linemates during our scrimmages thus far. If both of those guys keep it up, they are definitely going to do well for Team Three.
What is the team trying to accomplish during fall ball?
We're trying to get back into it; get some reps in before the season comes, so when we get the chance to go play Notre Dame and get to compete against different guys -- that's a lot more fun for us. This week we are working on a lot of skill work and next week we are working on some concepts and other things that are going to get into our offense and defense schemes. Then hopefully we can just bring a bunch of hard work to Notre Dame and finish fall ball the right way.
You switched from No. 45 to No. 15 this season, talk about the reasoning behind that ...
I wore No. 15 in high school at Brother Rice in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., and I decided this year was the year to switch. I was No. 45 for my first two years and I thought No. 15 would be a good switch for my last two years here.
