COACH SMART ON MO:

“The continued development of his confidence is a big thing. It has grown a lot and he definitely feels like he belongs and it’s significant, but now he has to believe ‘hey I’m better than this guy and I can attack him and make plays. He’s more effective in other ways. I was really pleased with the year he had last year and the progress he’s made’”
