Criner’s Critique
“David Diaz-Infante is a very experienced center, which is important in two ways for our development: 1) his experience and quickness enable him to compete with Lamont Burns for the starting center job, which 2) takes some pressure off our other versatile O-linemen, Pat Kesi and Mark Nori, so that they can focus on the guard positions.”
