Neumann said: “Their quarterback is a very good passer. He’s a timely passer. He doesn’t waste much time getting the pass off. He doesn’t drop very deep and gets the pass off quickly. He’s got some excellent receivers, too. Dalton Doyle has breakaway speed. If you’re talking offense, you have to start with Sezer. Angles of pursuit and containment are going to be very important. They’ve got a big offensive line that does a good job too.”
