ST Coordinator Kevin Spencer on Scifres: “He’s a pro. He can change the field. Everyone has a lot of respect for Mike in that locker room. He is an athlete that is also a punter. He is still very effective and takes care of his body. He is a pro that learned very early on and got that he has to take care of himself. Mike still punts the ball with the best of them. It’s like the old adage you don’t know what you have until it’s gone. Well, as a coach you sometimes take for granted performances, and then when it is not there, it reinforces it. We are glad Mike is back healthy and ready.”
ST Coordinator Kevin Spencer on Novak: “He is a pro who has worked very hard to attain his position. He is an incredible young man. You take away some of the glitches at the end of the year when we lost Mike, Nick is above 90% effectiveness. Coach has the confidence in him in every situation, but we’ve challenged him just like everybody else. There are things he has to get better at, and he’s working hard this offseason like he always does. Putting in work is never an issue with Nick. Sometimes we have to tell him to slow down because he works so hard.”
Lambo – A second-team All-SEC selection as a senior in 2014, Lambo converted 84.0% of field goals (21 of 25) over his career to become the most accurate kicker in Texas A&M history. Lambo is a former soccer goalie who was a first round selection by FC Dallas in the 2008 MLS Draft.
Head Coach Mike McCoy on Windt: “The long snapper is one of those positions that you never want to read about, but he does a great job of indirectly leading the team. There are certain things he does and says to people, that whether it is through practice, in meetings or on the field on game day; he does a great job with his role. All of the players really like being around him. He’s a fun guy, understands his role and doesn’t step on anyone’s toes. He does his job every day.”
ST Coordinator Kevin Spencer on Jones: “First of all he’s a really big man. When I first saw him I was like, ‘Holy smokes!’ He always dressed out big, but he is a big person and still runs very, very well. He has a lot of gas in the tank, and he gets his role. He knows what his job is, and he knows what he gets paid to do and help his team. He’s a real pro and has a lot of juice left. But what we have to get across to guys is they can’t just think we will roll number 12’s helmet out there and we’ll be successful. The other 10 guys have to hold up their end of the bargain. It’s just like what Coach McCoy said when he first got here. Philip Rivers is our guy, but everybody else has to get better around him. It’s the same type of mentality for Jacoby. He will do his job, but now the rest of the guys have to do their jobs.”
ST Coordinator Kevin Spencer on Stuckey: “Obviously we were very, very happy for him. It’s just a great thing because he is a great person and a great player. He works hard. In the old days you had a lot of Darrell Stuckeys, but that’s not the case anymore. He is a throwback in some respects, so I’m really happy for him. He was honored and recognized, and got to play defense too.” Read
