Cade Mays: If anything happens, I'm the guy who can be plugged in

August 20, 2019

On the competition on the offensive line…
“We’re real deep on the o-line, and we’re just out there competing every day and making the most of our reps. We’re just doing everything we can.”
On the best compliment someone could pay him as a football player…
“I would say the best thing that someone could say about me is just that I play hard and that I love the game and that I just want to finish people.”
On playing multiple positions on the offensive line…
“I like being that useful. If anything happens, I’m the guy that can be plugged in. Anything that happens, I’m the guy. It’s definitely helped me to learn the center spot. It’s helped me learn the offense better knowing what everybody else is doing. I don’t think it’s slowed me down. I think it’s picked my game up and elevated it to a new level.”
On how playing multiple positions (and center) happened…
“It just came about. (Coach Sam Pittman) just moved me there one day and saw that I could play. Since then, it’s just kind of been the deal.”
On playing both the left and right sides of the line…
“I kind of played everything my whole life, starting in youth ball. My dad (Kevin Mays), when we were playing youth ball, any time we were running to the left, he put me on the left side. Any time we were running to the right, he put me on the right side. It’s kind of been that way my whole life. I’ve played both sides.”
