Snyder & Moses Represent UVa at ACC Football Kickoff
ACC Media day has a different look this year with newcomers Syracuse and Pitt joining the conference this season.
Virginia Senior Lineman, Morgan Moses and Jake Snyder represented the Wahoos in Greensboro. Moses will anchor a Cavalier offensive line on a team that wants to recommit to running the ball this season alongside Kevin Parks and highly touted incoming freshman, Taquan Mizzell.
Moses said, "as for our offensive line, we have a lot of guys that played last year returning. That will definitely help us because being an offensive line - that's one thing that you look for in an offense. You look for an offensive line to get that running game.
Snyder is part of a defense that wants to be more aggressive this year - especially when it comes to roughing the passer.
"I like to look at myself as a leader, and Morgan is the same way. The younger guys are going to look up to us because the way we work and because of the way we play. On the field, off the field always trying to do the right thing. Trying to set the example for these young guys coming in is the most important thing to us."
The Cavaliers finished with a record of 4-8 last season and as a result the Cavaliers have several new coaches. John Tenuta is the new offensive coordinator while Steve Fairchild is the new offensive coordinator.
Moses said, "Fairchild is a great offensive coordinator. It seems like the guys are really buying into his beliefs and what we do on offense. But he also coaches the quarterbacks for us and the quarterbacks as you know there's a little competition going on and those guys are buying into his system. A lot of the guys love what he's doing for us." Snyder added, "He's the kind of coach that players like to play for. He's fired up all the time. He's excited. He likes to bring pressure and get after the quarterback and create turnovers and that's what we want to start doing as a defense.
Monday afternoon, Coach Mike London will talk to the media and the media's preseason predictions will be released.
