Carroll Receivers Stepping Up to Help New Quarterbacks

Posted: Updated:
HELENA -

Last week we took a look at the Carroll Saints quarterback battle, but this week let's take a look at the guys catching those passes. With a new signal caller under center it's going to be critical that these receivers make sure their routes are tight as well as their overall games to ease that transition.

"I would hope that Anthony Clark and I would hope that Dylan Simac, and Jared Mayernik especially that those three guys could sit and watch film with those quarterbacks," said Saints head coach Mike Van Diest. "This summer spend a lot of time with timing and passing routes and things like that. And just let them know 'Hey we're here to make the plays for you.' And 'Here's the routes we like to run. Here's what we've called in the past.' And they'll help them any way they can."

"Both quarterbacks were here last year so they know all of us receivers," said senior wide out Anthony Clark. "And I know last year we got the work in with them, so I don't think it's going to be a big impact. I think it's just going to be getting those tendencies down. Getting everything down like we did with Doc, and I think it'll come easy since they've been around."

"I don't know if it's so much individual, we definitely have to be on the same page as the quarterback," said sophomore receiver Kyle Griffith. "I mean just working with them is definitely going to help that. We definitely have to make sure ourselves that we're crisp, but if we gel with the quarterback we're going to be fine."

"It's awesome really cause you're kind of both learning at the same time," said senior receiver Jared Mayernik. "You learn new things with each quarterback that you play with so each quarterback likes small things done differently."

"We have some depth but there's still a lot of battles to be fought with all the younger guys coming in and with filling the twos positions, maybe the ones," added junior wide receiver Dylan Simac. "And the running backs, there's a big battle there and there's always a battle at quarterback."

Well those guys show no lack of confidence. Obviously this year it's going to be all about the depth for these receivers in order to help the quarterbacks out, but they don't seem too worried.
