Clemson junior safety Rashard Hall impressed the media Tuesday when he showed up for interviews with a dress shirt and tie. The leader of the secondary doesn’t believe their will be a dropoff in the secondary in 2011 even through the Tigers lost three starters from last season.
“It’s been good. I has been a good experience with new guys coming in. I am taking that leadershop role and that active role on the field now with the loss of DeAndre McDaniel, Bryon Maxwell and Gilchrist. We came together as a group in the secondary and there is no dropoff,” said Hall.
Will the defense have to play differently in 2011 after all of the losses at defensive end and in the secondary?
“Honestly I don’t think so. I think our system is built for guys like we have here. Just like last year we have guys that can get the job done at each position. I think we will in great at the positions we have lost,” said Hall.
Rashard believes the Tiger defense will be ready for the similar Troy offense.
“Yes sir, I think that was a great advantage for us going against that in practice every day,” said Hall.
