“When Mete got hurt, he came back to the sideline and was asking me questions,” freshman linebacker Mario Rowson said. “In practice, he was doing it like he knew it. I was like ‘Just calm down. It’s like practice. It’s nothing to stress over.’ He looked at me and said ‘Yeah, I’m ready to go.’ “

It’s just far sooner than he thought he would be needed.

“It’s different to think about now,” Twine said. “Before, I was so worried about not playing and worried about not being able to dress and now that I’ve been thrown into situations I didn’t think I’d ever be thrown into before. It’s good that it happened. It’s good to see how far I came.”
