Winston Guy believes his brief time at cornerback last season may have helped make him a better safety.
“It did help me. Switching me made me work on my technique and the little things to become a better player that I had not done before. Then moving back to safety makes me use my athleticism more. Just fundamental things that make me better,” Guy said.
“I like safety. I came in to play safety and I am glad the coaches have given me a chance to be with the first unit and get comfortable with them.”
Guy has looked more comfortable covering the pass during the spring. He believes he’s not only breaking on the ball better, but that he also understands coverage better.
“Every freshman is a little nervous and stiff. Being with the first unit so much has helped me a lot,” he said. “I have a real good connection with all the players who have been in the program. They know what to do and things I don’t know, they will help me out. I try to get everything down and not make the same mistake twice.”
“There are a lot of things that happen during a game that can mess you up. Missed assignments and stuff. But that can be corrected. That’s why we practice so hard every day. You want to get better and make up for your mistakes and not make the same mistake twice.”
