Bouncing took a Toll

Coach Ralph Friedgen has talked a lot about wearing too many hats the past two seasons, and center Edwin Williams can relate:

“Last summer I had an internship with Under Armour. I had a bouncing job at a club at night and I had to come here and lift and take classes. It was really tough. I got no sleep because I was bouncing at the night club all night. During the day, I was up very early in the morning, then I would drive up to Baltimore every day, had to come back for class, had to work out, had to go to class, and had to perform.

“I couldn’t do all of it so I had to drop something. I had to drop the night club thing, even though it was probably the best playing job. You jump in there not knowing how hard it would be. You think, I can do it. And for a couple weeks it’s good, until you find yourself dozing off in class. Then, Oh, I don’t know if I can do it. I’m pretty sure [all the extra offensive duties] took a toll on Coach Friedgen. He is not a young guy anymore.”
