And the defense is designed to be extremely stingy. That’s a mindset that is being absorbed.
“You don’t want to give the offense a blade of grass,” said Redding. “That’s the mentality of a defender. You don’t want them to cross your goal line. That’s the mentality of a defender. So, at the end of the day you want to get better but you do not want to lose. You want to win. You want to keep stacking wins because it transforms from the practice field to the game field. At the end of the day, both sides of the ball are getting better. Offense has their moments, we have our moments. At the end of the day, as the mindset of a defender, I don’t want to give up this blade of grass. That’s what it’s got to be.”
