"It means a lot," Baker said. "To be able to come in as a starter was a blessing for me, and a huge opportunity for me to show the coaches and show the rest of people that I'm a hell of a football player."
"I'm a resilient player, but I've always been a player no matter where I was positioned," Baker said. "I knew if I had a chance and an opportunity to show my skills, I would be OK. As long as I had that chance and that opportunity, I always did well. For the coaches and the players to believe in me, to be a starter — it's a blessing, and you know, I don't take it for granted."
