Quattrochi Ready For Camp, Eyeing Repeat

Quattrochi Ready For Camp, Eyeing Repeat

Austin Quattrochi is ready for camp to get underway, and is excited to get the season started. He is ready to get his senior season started, and hopes to make it a great year. The Eagle center says he is eager to get into the season, attempt to repeat as conference champion, and perhaps do something that he says everyone is talking about.

Summer workouts have gone great for Quattrochi. The transition to a new quarterback has gone well so far, the senior offensive lineman said. "The transition is going really good," he said. "We've got two or three guys that are extremely talented."

"I don't really know who the starter is going to be," he added. "Chris Campbell has been here three or four years now, and he has a good feel for college football. He has a good feel for the game, so the transition wasn't as hard as I expected it to be. Ricky [Lloyd] and Anthony Alford are pretty good as well."

Quattrochi thinks the transition to a new coaching staff has also gone very well. "I really like the new coaches, they really know what they're doing," he said. "They've been all over the country and coached great players"

"If our team buys into what they have to offer and what their philosophy is, we're going to have another great season. The coaches have a good scheme coming in, and I think we can be just as successful as last season, if not more ."

The Golden Eagle lineman is looking forward to fall camp, and is especially ready for the football aspect of camp. "I'm ready to get in this new system in that we've been talking about all summer," Quattrochi said.

"I'm ready to get out there and work on plays." he said. "Coming together as a team is another part of what camp is all about. We form a brotherhood in camp and I'm really looking forward to that."

As for the start of the season, Quattrochi feels that getting a win over Nebraska is an important first step. "They're a great opponent, if we can go in there and win, that would be great for us," he said.

Quattrochi hopes to be able to build on the team's conference championship last season. "We just want to take what we did last year and build on it," he said. "We know what it takes now to have a year like that, so I feel like we should try to replicate that as best we can."

Quattrochi wants to replicate the conference championship of last season, but also feels the team can do more, and propel themselves to a new goal. "We will try to find ways that we can do a little bit more." Quattrochi said. "If it's in the film room or the weight room, any little thing like that to propel us to that BCS Bowl that everyone is talking about."
