To be realistic, probably not.
He's got great hands. He's just got to get the opportunities.
I have a greater understanding of the offense, and that allows me to free-flow and make more plays and that helps my confidence level a lot.
I'm just looking forward to getting a chance to get on the field and make some plays. If you're a football player, you can adjust to anything on the field.
I think the interceptions have a lot to do with the underneath coverage. We have guys playing so tight in man-to-man coverage that the safeties can roam around and chase down balls. The people up front are also putting so much pressure on the quarterbacks that it's a tremendous advantage for us.
We're very young, but we have some confidence. I think it could be a good year. The pitching has been outstanding. We have five complete games and Thompson has 35 strikeouts in three games and his ERA is 1.67.
I think he is playing really well. I have had the chance to play with him a couple times and it seems he is playing with more determination in this tournament than I have ever seen.
