Director Furman on who impressed the most during the training camp
Ahead of the premiere, Furman spoke to Fan Nation about the players who caught his attention. "It was interesting, Trinity Benson, No. 17, he had a couple of good days while I was there, and then I saw that Coach Campbell brought him up in the presser after that, so I was like, maybe I do know what I’m talking about," he explained. "I called everybody I know and was like, 'Yeah, that was just somebody I wanted to keep on my radar.' Honestly, I would say Aubrey Pleasant, coach (Aaron) Glenn, and Trinity Benson were three people who stood out to me in those two days."
