Dorsett feels much improved from 2012

Posted Aug 6, 2013

Read on to see what junior wide receiver Phillip Dorsett is saying after the first four days of fall camp.

On fall camp:
I worked a lot in the offseason on lower body explosion and things like that. I’m just ready to come out here and show it on the field.

On improvement from 2012:
I feel like I’m a lot better. I’ve been working on speed, converting speed to breaking down and running better routes. I feel like I’m a much better receiver this year.

On being surprised at his 4.29 40:
Not really. I was messing with Swasey the whole time saying I was gonna run it.

On how it feels being the fastest player on the team:
It feels great. I came a long way and put a lot of hard work in. I’ve been running track and playing football my whole life. Conditioning is nothing to me. I increased my strength and I’m happy with it.

On last year’s 40 time:
I ran a 4.3. I’m just happy I ran it and now I’m happy to get out here playing football. We have a lot of fast guys on this team. I just can’t wait to showcase it.

On some key drops last season:
I put it behind me. I’m not going to say I’m glad it happened to me but I kinda am because it made me who I am now. It keeps you hungry. Bad things will happen. You have to move onto the next play, and can’t worry about the past.
