December 11, 2018 (San Diego) - With a bowl game a week away, SDSU football brought in a plethora of players to talk to the media today, including a rare appearance from senior kicker John Baron II.  Joining him were obviously Rocky Long, junior linebacker Kyahva Tenzino, junior defensive end Myles Cheatum and junior quarterback Ryan Agnew.

 

“Seems like a long time since we’ve played a game and we’ve still got over a week before we actually get to play," Long lamented in his opening statement. "The good part about it is we’re practicing and Thursday, we’ll start to game prep... The bad deal is when you have this much time on your hands, you watch more and more film. And the more film I watch, the better they (Ohio) get. I think that one week of preparation before you play most games is probably plenty for a coach. When you have basically three weeks to prepare for a team, you see more and more things that they do well. I don’t know if that’s good on my psyche or not. But obviously we’re getting a lot out of these first two weeks developing our team for next year basically.”
