Brady Hokes talks Aztecs' progress and goals

Second year San Diego State head coach Brady Hoke opens camps today. 

Before camp began, Hoke talked about the Aztecs’ progress and defensive goals.

“I think we’ve gotten closer as a team and I think that’s a big part of any kind of successful organization or business is the ability to push each other and motivate each other and be accountable to each other. I don’t think there is any doubt we’re closer as a team. The expectations are more defined and there is more clarity to what those expectations are from the classroom to the social avenues and how you prepare to play a game. You can see the growth of the team. Then, obviously, from a physical standpoint, I know we’re a stronger team and a more athletic team overall. Part of that is addition by subtraction and the redshirt freshmen from a year ago. Those things have created more competition and created better play.” 

“We have to do a better job in the run game, No.?1. Then we have to create more negative plays. We only had 19 sacks a year ago. That’s us not doing a good job as a staff. We have to take advantage of opportunities and take advantage of a protection and beat some one-on-one blocks.” 

San Diego State host Nicholls State in the season-opener on September 4th. San Diego State will play at Missouri, at BYU, and at TCU this season.
