Ross marvels at Hunter Renfow’s ability
“Now that I actually know him and know who he is and being around him, it does surprise me everything he can do. Renfrow can do almost anything. He plays quarterback sometimes. He punted the ball against Wake Forest for 50 yards. He can do anything.”
Ross on the how special the leadership is on this team
“The leadership that we have here. The family type culture, everybody in the locker room gets along. They know when and when not to do things. Just being around a good family.”

“I just want to dedicate this game to my mom because of what she’s done and what she has been through.”
