It hasn’t taken Quentin Randolph long to notice how different football is in college compared to high school.
“The speed and power,” Randolph said. “The defense is also more physical and much smarter than defenses we played against in high school.”
Randolph, the former standout wide receiver at Navarre, is in his first season at the University of West Florida, which will play its inaugural season in 2016.
But the Argonauts are allowed to practice this fall and Randolph is taking advantage of the extra year of preparation, although he will tell you it is different practicing all week knowing there isn’t a game at the end of it.
“This is a growing experience,” Randolph said. “We have a great wide receivers coach (Jammie Deese), who played at Wake Forest. He’s getting us right and getting us prepared to play. We’ll be ready to put on a show in 2016.”
Each day serves as a step toward being ready to go next fall, whether it’s a practice, building strength in the weight room or filling his brain with knowledge from the playbook.
