Friedgen: RG Lewis 'taking coaching much better'
The right guard battle had been seen as one of the more compelling competitions in camp, but sophomore Justin Lewis is now firmly entrenched as the starter after a strong performance in Monday’s scrimmage.
Coach Ralph Friedgen said Lewis neutralized sophomore defensive lineman Joe Vellano, who had been the star of spring practice but struggled to make plays Monday. Lewis exhibited very good technique Monday, and offensive line coach Tom Brattan told coaches that that was the best Lewis has played for an extended time.
“He seems much happier,” Friedgen said of Lewis. “I don’t know if he was mad at me or just mad at everyone. He is using that aggression out on the football field. And he is taking coaching much better. If he screws up, it used to be an argument.”
