Default Re: University Of Houston

I thought Coach Sumlin had some really nice things to say in regard to Keenum getting the nod this weekend.....

From chron.com

Quote:
Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin, who coached Keenum at UH, said of the news, “It’s really a neat situation for him. Here’s a guy who was an undrafted free agent who was coming off a sixth year of eligibility after a devastating knee injury. What a great story. It’s just a testament to his passion and his hard work and his demeanor – to work through all of those things and then be able to start his first NFL game after not even being on the active roster.

“Everybody has got an idea what a prototypical quarterback looks like. The way the game is played now they come in all sizes and there’s no doubt Case has always had the ability to play at a high level, and he was consistent (at UH) in doing so. You don’t set the NCAA (passing) record just by luck. He knows what he’s doing. He’s looking forward to this opportunity and I look for him to take full advantage of it.”

Sumlin said he had texted Keenum’s father congratulations, saying: “As a coach, when you have players like Case, you’re almost like a parent. You’re always rooting for them like they’re one of your kids. I’m just happy for his whole family. There’s probably not been a story of a guy who’s gone through what he’s gone through and to get to start in the NFL after not even having been activated.”

Sumlin choked up, then continued.

“He’s gone from sweats to starting,” he said, chuckling. “There’s a little bit of pressure involved in that.”
