UTC coach Russ Huesman’s most recent motto is “be careful what you promise a player.”
“Earlier this week in practice Huesman got on linebacker Gunner Miller for being out of position too much.
“In the heat of the moment I told him that he would get a game ball if he made an interception,” said Huesman after he did his usual post-game radio interview tonight.
“After Gunner made the interception in the second quarter, he came running to the sideline smiling, and while pointing in my direction he said ‘I get the game ball,’” Huesman stated with a smile.
