Every time I read an Aaron Murray story, I grow more impressed. Marc Weiszer’s got a good one up today about how Murray’s been able to grow into the position and how the playbook has opened up as a result.
And you’ve got to like this comparison from his head coach:
… Like Greene, who also started as a redshirt freshman in 2001, Richt chalks up Murray’s early success to “coachability,”
“That’s one thing I realized about Greene in the very beginning when we started meeting with him and I’d watch him go about his business,” Richt said. “That guy was focused, that guy was taking notes. That guy would go from the meeting room to the practice field and you could see his head nod and he’d do exactly what he would supposed to do in his progressions. He was creating habits that were going to allow him to make good decisions. That’s what Murray does, and Mike and I both could see that in him.”
David Greene’s approach to the game packaged in a more athletic body? Not a bad place to start…
