Brady Hokes talks Aztecs' progress and goals

Publish date:

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.
