Football – Defensive Line Position Group Preview (2019)

Football – Defensive Line Position Group Preview (2019)


Our next position group
preview takes us to the defensive line and with
new DC Mike MacIntyre in town, it means a new look front
for the Rebels in 2019. The Rebs will operate
out of base 3-4 defense. That means three down lineman,
a nose tackle, and two ends. A welcome change for
D-line coach Freddy Roach, as the team heads towards
their first game with Memphis. I think it fits us best. We’ve got bigger guys
who control gaps and, or physical so, it actually
worked out for the best. We’re excited about what
we got to do upfront and, you know, we’ve got to fit
the piece of the puzzle. Just because there’s a new
system being installed, doesn’t me the D-line isn’t
loaded with returning talent. Seniors Benito Jones
and Josiah Coatney will look to plug up the middle. And guys like Austrian
Robinson, Ryder Anderson, and Tariqious Tisdale all
have big time snaps under their belt to help it in. And we got a lot of
guys who are now mature. You know, when I got
here they were younger. Those guys have grown
up and we look forward to watching them play
and continue to mature. They’ve been really good. They’ve been taught
the technique and they’ve done
it since day one, so they kind of picked
it up and ran with it. We’re really excited about it. We’re going to take a step
back and do a lot of teaching. We’re going to move
at a snails pace and we’re gonna do it right. We’re going to start from
scratch and just improve. We’re gonna trust a, we’re
gonna work on the journey not the destination. I think that’s the
best way to handle it and when we do that we’ll fit in where we need to
fit in defensively. I think we’ll be successful. Looking for more Ole
Miss football content as we gear up for 2019 season. Have not fear. You can follow the
Rebs on social media and find everything Ole Miss
