"They're quiet kids, pretty studious, they listen," said assistant coach Ashley Ingram, who works with Navy's centers and guards. "They line up and play. Obviously, they have some of the characteristics Josh has. Until they get on the field and prove it, obviously we won't know. Hopefully, that's what we're getting."
"We trust him," Ingram said. "We've coached him for five years counting the prep school year, so he knows exactly how we want things done. And also, just being a guy that can help mentor these guys. In the film study, he can sit down with them if we're in other meetings. It's been a huge help to have him here."
