26 Days until football time in Tennessee
With only 26 days until kickoff, the Tennessee Volunteers are gearing up for their upcoming season. The Vols take on Georgia State on August 31st.
Rick Russo: “Alright folks our 30 days 30 vols countdown continues with Deandre Johnson. You know what… like me he’s from South Florida, right?
Deandre Johnson: “Yes Sir”
RR: “So you are a junior now so you have been here a little bit. Tell me about the transition and what it was like making the move here from sunny South Florida to East Tennessee.”
DJ: “Aw man this most definitely was a change you know. Being from sunny South Florida coming up here to Knoxville you got all four seasons, so it took some time to get used to.”
RR: “Yeah but being here it’s pretty neat too. Tell me about this community and how much you have grown here and how much you like this area.”
DJ: “Oh man i’ve grown not only as a football player but as a man too. I’ve gotten more mature and I just thank my surroundings. You know it’s a slower pace lifestyle, I just take focus on what I need to.
RR: “No doubt about that. Now tell me about your position group, how excited you are to really show what you guys can do going into this season.”
DJ: “Yes sir, this group has worked really hard. We’ve been through a lot of ups and downs. I just feel like when the season comes, everybody is going to show what they got.”
RR: “Alright, tell the folks how many days.”
DJ: “We’ve got 26 days until it is football time in Tennessee.”
