“We came into the process and said it’s not going to be about age or who’s been on the field,” Clay Helton explained. “It’s going to be about how people play and how people compete on a day-to-day basis and execute the offense and how they do it consistently. JT did that.”
“I really appreciate how JT came into it understanding, that that’s real life,” Helton said. “He knew he had three really talented guys right there competing with him, and he never took it for granted that, you know, ‘I’ve had success in the past,’ but rather, ‘I need to raise my game to earn and fight for this job.’ That’s where I’ve seen his maturity grow.
“We were very surprised with Kedon coming out of the spring, very impressed,” Helton said. “We went through this camp and another 15 practices to see if it wasn’t just spring. He did it again.”
