Asked how long it took to get over losing the 2021 National Championship Game, Young said “It took a little bit, it took a little bit.” Young said he used the experience as a way to grow, evaluate and look at ways to improve.
Young said practice is all about learning how and where to get better.
Anderson was asked about leadership on the team. He said he and other leaders work on getting other team members to buy into the process and play to the highest standard.
Anderson said he set goals for himself last year and he has set bigger and better goals for this football season.
