SPECIAL TEAMS COORDINATOR DAVE TOUB
Q: How is Knile Davis doing and what do you see from him this season?
TOUB: “The sky’s the limit for him. He’s way ahead as a catcher goes. Last year he had to take it from ground zero to learn how to catch a kickoff and punt. He’s got a lot more confidence. He’s excited about the idea of being the guy.”
Q: Who has stood out at catching punts and kickoffs so far?
TOUB: “They’re all working hard. They’re all really good catchers, which is the most important thing, catching the ball. (Albert) Wilson, as a rookie, he’s really opened some eyes because he’s not only a good punt returner, he can be a kick returner too. He’s done a lot of good things on offense too, so he’s a guy that I really have my eye on and excited about.”
Q: What about Weston Dressler?
TOUB: “Dressler is in the mix. I feel good about him. He catches the ball well. He probably is our best catcher. That’s good for him.”
Q: Tell me a little about Brock Olivo.
TOUB: “Brock Olivo, when I was a strength coach at Missouri, I coached him. He was the hardest working player I ever had. He went to the Detroit Lions. He was a star special teams player for four years before he decided just to hang it up. Then he got into coaching and went to Italy and was a player, coach. Then he went and coached most recently at Coastal Carolina for three years. I had a chance to hire him, and we’re fortunate to have Brock here.”
