Between Classes reporter Yousaf Khan joined the ACC weekly teleconference for Miami Hurricanes head coach Mark Richt and asked about senior wide receiver Braxton Berrios as they prepare for a game on Saturday vs Georgia Tech.
Braxton Berrios has stepped up in every game, he’s got a touchdown in every game, several big moments in the FSU game. How impressed have you been with him this season?
Answer from MARK RICHT:
He’s been awesome. I mean, really and truly, as it was happening, it was pretty awesome, but then after the fact and watching the tape and even watching some TV copy of it, you can just see what a gutsy performance it was and really what a dominating performance it was. Guys that are 5’9″ and 180 or whatever he weighs, usually they can’t dominate a game the way he did against an elite opponent. But I thought it was pretty spectacular, actually. Richt also went to say how impressed he is with overall Duke defense and especially opposing teams converting only 7 out of 50 on third down, a big reason why they are 4-0. He also praised the play and leadership of senior WR Braxton Berrios and starting QB Malik Rosier.
The (4-0) Miami Hurricanes play at home in Hard Rock Stadium at 3:30 on ABC vs the (3-1) Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.
