Offensive Line Coach
Greg Adkins:

"We were looking to add a more mature player to our offensive line and then fortunately Larry was available to us. We made a decision to go on him and quickly he decided that this is where he wanted to be. He played at Hutchinson and was very well coached by Coach [Tyler] Brock on the offensive line. So I see a guy that can come in and hopefully be able to contribute to our offensive line in one of our inside positions whether it's guard or center, very quickly."
