Brock Mason how is your season going for you so far? This season has been great so far. We weren’t playing our best football at the start and during our homecoming game our starting QB dislocated his shoulder but he’s fully recovered and has been back for 3 weeks. Coach has been saying it and I completely agree, we are playing our best football right now. Which is exactly what you want. What has been your favorite memory this season? My favorite memory this season has to be winning the first round 42-0. Coming in we didn’t know a whole lot about Raby other than they were athletic and made lots of big plays so to shut them out and only give up 53 total yards of offense in the first half was unreal. The atmosphere was crazy and everyone played which made it that much better. What should college coaches know about you? I’m a hard worker whether that be on the the field, in the classroom, at practice, or wherever. I’m always competing and trying to win whatever task is at hand. I’m a fast learner and understand the game of football. I grew up with two older brothers who both played so I've been in and around the sport since I was 5 years old. Lastly, I’d say I can held accountable. I always try to be the first one in film in the morning and the last one out of the weight room making sure my teammates get in there with me as well. Team first mindset. What do you see in this Marquette squad for Saturday? Don’t know a whole lot yet because we start film tomorrow but I know they’re a very solid squad and they play physical football. It’s gonna be a fun game to play.
What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field? I’d say my strongest trait on the football field is my knowledge for the game. I study film and like I said have been around the game my whole life so I understand the game. Every morning throughout the week I go in early to school and watch film over the team we are playing so when the game comes around I know when and where to be to make the play.
