College Football 2013: Q&A session with Ball State RB Jahwan Edwards

Q&A session with Ball State RB Jahwan Edwards

After attending Ball State’s sixth practice of the spring session last Wednesday afternoon, I was able to catch up with star running back Jahwan Edwards, who rushed for over 1,400 yards and scored 14 touchdowns for the Cardinals last season:


1. How has practice been?

“It’s going well. It's nice just to get out here. We’ve been going hard for 10 or 11 weeks just lifting and running in the mornings and it's just a good feeling to be in pads."

2. How long does it take to pull out the cobwebs and find a rhythm out there?

“You’re a little rusty the first day -- that’s why you come out here in shells just to learn the plays. But during the offseason you’re watching film and you kind of know what you need to do. You just need to get a couple repetitions at it and you’re back.”
 
3. Last year you had a lot of success in what really was a balanced offense. You pretty much have a brand new offensive line, albeit one returning starter. What’s it going to take from you to regain that balanced attack?

“Keep my offensive line moving and tell them they’re doing a good job. It’s all about confidence. I need to bust big runs and help them with blocks to get them going.”

4. Are the new guys doing a nice job so far?
 
"Yes sir. Definitely."

5. Do you have a lot of personal goals for yourself this season?

“I definitely have a lot of personal goals, but making the MAC championship is one of them and is also one of our team goals.”

6. What are your expectations for your team for the rest of this spring?

“Just to get back at it, man. To come out here grinding. They say defense was a weak point so I stay on them and argue with them all the time, make sure they’re doing the right thing – breaking down and making tackles.”
