Starting center Matthew Devereux played left guard last year. But selflessly made the transition to center in the Spring.
"The team needed me there and more importantly coach mac thought that I could excel better at that position and I trust him with full confidence and I put my faith in him and right not it's the best decision I ever made," said Devereux.
"He's going to do to win a national championship. He's a great player he's a heck of a guy off the field and he's going to do what it takes to help this o line I'm proud of him everyone is proud of him," said junior right guard Quinn Catalano.
To play center you have to be able to work well in tight spaces.
"He's learning that the center position is like playing in an old school phone booth. Take the nose guard in front of you you guys go in an old school phone booth close the door and that's where that game is played the whole time," said offensive line coach Jason McEndoo.
There were some snapping concerns in the spring, but Devereux devoted himself in the summer to make that a strength.
"I just spent a lot of time in the summer snapping the ball I was here with the o line working every chance I had I was snapping the ball with denarius and getting a feel for it getting a lot of reps and it just became second nature," said Devereux.
"He really took ownership he really worked at it during the summer he probly snapped 500 balls 1000 balls," said McEndoo.
Devereux is smart. He was accepted into Princeton. So when talking with coach McEndoo it's strictly football.
"With a double finance major and graduate with a masters in ceritfied public accounting program so i don't we don't talk to much on an academic level," said McEndoo.
