Watson's Learning Curve
Changing positions is never easy, even if you are moving from wide receiver to tight end like redshirt freshman Lansford Watson did. Watson caught three passes for 23 yards Saturday against California, but he is still a work in progress. Well, Ralph Friedgen knows a little bit about changing positions.
“From a guy who went from QB to offensive line, it takes a while. Coaches were getting on Lansford, I told him, ‘You see right over there where the shed is, Coach [Bob] Ward broke his Orange Bowl watch on my head because I couldn’t block anybody. And he never even knew I was a quarterback, that’s how it was back then. I said to Lansford, ‘As long as you are getting better.’ And I thought he did some better things in practice.”
