Standout freshman safety Shaq Thompson talked to the media for the first time this season. Per team rules, freshmen are you usually unavailable early on.
Thompson talked about his summer of baseball – he is returning to play again next summer and possible for a few days this spring. He said he learned about failure and how to deal with it from playing baseball.
He played middle linebacker in his younger days so the move to playing closer to the line of scrimmage hasn’t been as tough of a transition.
