“Our guys practice with energy. They like to be out here and that’s a sign of a good team,” says USC DB coach Greg Burns. “When you like to practice and like playing and working with the guys you’re competing with, it becomes good. Nobody’s a starter. Nobody’s a backup. You have an opportunity to come in and compete. Everyone needs to have the mindset that they have to prove they deserve their spot.”
“We are at a different pace right now,” safety Talanoa Hufanga said. “It’s something we weren’t accustomed to last year. You can see all the energy we bring now. We’re excited to be out here and we don’t want (what happened) last year.” Hufanga said of deciphering Graham Harrell’s new-look offense, “It’s awesome. You get a lot of reps. For us, this new (defensive) scheme allows us to play fast and free.”
