It has made me a better player because I was able to compete against them week in and week out in practice. Marvin and Keenan helped me build my confidence. When I had success against them in practice it made me realize my potential and they really challenged me. It isn’t easy going against guys like Marvin and Keenan in practice. You have your hands full day in and day out going up against those two. They really helped me grow as a player and a person and I feel I got the best out of my ability because I had to if I wanted to earn a starting spot going up against those two.
