Green Is a HoF level player for the Horned Frogs.
Before the season, Green said he’d love to average three appearances per week.
Asked if he’s ever told Schlossnagle and pitching coach Kirk Saarloos he needed a day off, Green smiled and said: “No. Never. They’ll never hear that from me.”
Green pointed to his conditioning and fitness as to why he’s been dependable. He mentioned doing plyometric exercises to keep his shoulder healthy too.
“I’m doing a lot of stuff all the time to be able to go out there as much as I can,” Green said. “Every time I can get out there, I love it.”
The Frogs can prove it again this weekend at home.
The Frogs needed to show they belong among the Big 12’s best at the top of the conference standings, despite having only seen action against Baylor and Oklahoma, two of the league’s worst.
After a hard-fought series, the Frogs headed back to Fort Worth with a 2-1 series loss, but the weekend was far from a complete loss for TCU.
Behind a Friday starter that has been lights-out, consistent offense from a plethora of players and newfound leadership from upperclassmen like Hunter Wolfe, the Frogs showed this weekend that they can and will continue to compete with the best that the nation has to offer.
How could you not?
“Typically you get a safety who has athleticism and is kind of a ballhawk and has great range, but is not great in run support. I think he’s a really complete player. That’s why I have him as the only safety going in the first round.”
McShay didn’t stop there.
He added: “I think he’s one of the best defensive players in the entire class.”
McShay has only three defensive players being taken before Moehrig in his draft.
Moehrig, who measured in at 6-foot, 5/8-inches and 202 pounds at TCU’s pro day last month, is coming off a season in which he won the Jim Thorpe Award as the nation’s top defensive back. He started all 10 games, finishing with the third-most tackles (47) on the Frogs. He had two interceptions and nine pass breakups, earning All-Big 12 first-team honors for the second consecutive season.
This interview was met with mixed messages on social media, where some felt that Boschini, generally beloved by students and alumni, came across as out of touch. If you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend taking the time.
S-T: What is TCU’s brand now? Are you a research 1 institute? A small private liberal arts school? Are you selling education? Are you selling the four-year experience?
VB: None of those. Here is our brand — a connection with people on campus that you don’t get other places. I know it’s expensive, but for that $60,000 you are going to leave here with connections you never thought you’d have and will change your life.
