MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Every senior class is looked up to for leadership and direction. This year – the auburn tigers have a senior to help fill that role – fullback Jay Prosch.
“We’re making incredible progress, at the beginning we were getting back into the plays back into what guys were going and it’s starting to flow, it’s really starting to flow now so it’s starting to look like an offense and starting to come together so it’s exciting,” said Prosch.
Prosch has two touchdowns in his career at Auburn – and this year will be looked at more often as a scoring threat. The fullback says the diversity that new starting QB Nick Marshall brings to the team – will be crucial for success this fall.
“I feel like we established him in the running game and we picked it up when camp started so I definitely feel confident in the running game – I know he’s definitely a hard runner, extremely hard runner and that he is the kind of guy that won’t back down from a hit and won’t stop running his feet, so he’s definitely a good runner,” said Prosch of Marshall.
Prosch also mentioned he’s taken snaps with the QB and his job will primarily be catching the ball.
“No hand offs-but I’ve caught a bunch of passes so far, unfortunately nothing line in a live situations … haven’t had a chance to break any tackles, but I’ve caught a lot of passes.”
