Miami Hurricanes’ Jarren Williams on contributing to team: I’m going to ‘give everything I got’


I mean, he’s a great guy. I mean, I love him. He just said to me, protect the ball. He said I like the way you spin the ball. He said some nice things. But he just said take it one step,
one play at a time. Don’t let the moment get too big.>>Obviously you’re already fired up for
the game on Saturday. But how much does it amp you up
even more that he comes out, talks to the team today and
spends time, just one on one.>>Yeah, it gets me, it fired me up. His speech he gave us,
it fired me up, I’ll tell you that. But I know I gotta stay here,
not too high, not too low. I’m gonna just stay right in the middle,
and just take it one play, one call at a time, so.>>Did you feel becoming a starting
quarterback to be the leader of the team? Or was that a gradual process for you?>>I feel like it’s a gradual process. Because, throughout the summer and spring,
my thing was I’m gonna show these guys I’m gonna work and
give everything I got for them. So, I go out there every day and
I really give everything I had, empty the tank, just to show them that I’m
gonna be the guy that you all can rely on. So I feel doing that time after the time,
gradually built that leadership. So then when I was, I had the opportunity
to be named the starting quarterback, I was like kind of in that leadership
role so it was just kind of carried on.>>Have they given you any advice?>>Last place that you
weren’t thinking before. Some of the guys have started games here. Have they given you any
advice about what to expect?.>>They really just told
me be confident and be you. This is the moment you
prepared your whole life for, so don’t let the moment get too big for
you. They tell me, go out there and
just be you and have fun. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity,
so just take advantage of it. [BLANK_AUDIO]
