Two minutes of great footage taken from Mike Glennon’s ‘helmet cam’ this weekend at the Spring Game shown here. It is really neat to watch…and, is fascinating for the average fan to witness first hand how little visibility a quarterback has in many instances (even a QB as tall as Glennon).
While we are on the topic of Glennon…ESPN ran this ‘Q&A with Mike Glennon’ that you may enjoy.
How do you build on a season where you threw for more than 3,000 yards, plus 31 touchdowns?
Mike Glennon: I think the biggest thing is probably the win column. We expect to be, we want to be, ACC champions. And in order to do that, we have to improve a lot from last year. And thatâ€™s kind of the approach Iâ€™m taking: that we have a lot more work to do to accomplish those goals.
Whatâ€™s the biggest strength of your offense, from what youâ€™ve seen this spring?
Mike Glennon: Our veteran offensive line. We have four or five guys who are seniors [Zach Allen, Andrew Wallace, R.J. Mattes, Camden Wentz], and another guy [redshirt junior Duran Christophe] who has played a lot of football for us. And thatâ€™s really showed this spring; our offensive line has done a great job protecting the quarterback and opening up the running game. … Itâ€™s really the quarterbackâ€™s best friend, the offensive line. Obviously, you donâ€™t want to get hit too much. You know itâ€™s going to happen, but if they can take that pressure off of you, it makes throwing that much easier, and it really helps our running game and our passing game. It all works hand-in-hand, and theyâ€™re the core of our offensive group.
