“Looks great. He’s amazing, isn’t he? Yeah, I talked to Terry Taylor. I hope that they bring him up soon. I’ve only seen him twice on TV. But Taylor called me the other day to say hi, and I guess he’s only had 20 matches, but he’s an impressive-looking kid. Great physique. And it’d be like his dad is probably half tough.” he said.
