Says he's really impressed with the rookies. Says if he didn't know better, he wouldn't know they were rookies. Calls them really well developed.
"If I am put into that position – great – but I am not making it a priority. I’m trying to win games. However, I can do that… I’m tired of losing. I hate losing more than I like winning. So, I’m just trying to help this team and if they put me as captain, then great. I’m just trying to do everything I can to help this organization win.”
Tired of losing:
"I'm tired of losing. ... I hate losing more than I like winning." Jonathan Allen said of whether he's embracing taking over the leadership role. His main concern is getting wins, that's it. #HTTR— Rhiannon Walker (@InstantRHIplay) July 30, 2019
"As a defense, I feel we did a lot better. Really, I feel as defense we come out and try to correct the little mistakes we did. When it comes to giving up plays on defense, it’s never big plays that affect you, it is always just doing the little things right, not communicating, lack of communication, not running through the ball, guys not playing blocks the right way, fitting off each other. We just try to focus on the little things that we can do to help because we feel like you do the little things right, the big things will take care of itself.”
Allen says he gets his "competitive fix" playing video games in the off-season. Plays a lot and is competitive in everything he does.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) July 30, 2019
