“Kyle’s doing a great job,” Brady said. “From the day that he got here he’s a very hard-worker. Clyde [Christensen] works extremely hard with him to get him ready to go. Kyle’s out here early, stays late, works with the younger guys. All the things that you’re really looking for in a young player.”

Talking from his own experience, Brady highlighted all the things the young QB must do to excel in the NFL.

“Every year you’re going to improve,” Brady said. “You’ve got to be able to retain a lot of information and you’ve got to be able to improve the weaknesses in your game as well as maintain the strengths in your game. But it’s just constant development and it’s really up to each individual, not only Kyle but I’d say a lot of young players,” he added.

Filling Brady’s shoes will be no easy feat. But getting watch and practice along with perhaps the greatest QB ever will definitely do a world of good for Trask once he needs to step up.
