“I’m way more comfortable,” Gardner said. “Last year was my first year starting, and it was rough, a lot of ups and downs, a lot of adversity. A lot of adversity I fought through, and I feel like I did a really good job of never giving up, never giving up on myself and my teammates. I feel my teammates recognized that, and my coaches recognized that, and I feel like that will help me.”
"Mesko has an incredibly strong leg. He kicked three straight 62-yard field goals in practice and his hang-time on punts was 5.2 seconds. Not bad seeing that professional punters average 4.7 hang-time on their punts."
I guess I understand why everyone is getting excited over this guy now. I wonder if we'll see Mesko doing kickoffs like Nienberg did with that huge leg.
