"I want to get my pass-drops down and just get smoother into them. I have 4.6 speed, so I have the speed to do well in coverage, but it wasn't something I was really good at so it's been a focus for me this offseason."
Carlisle and his teammates began two-a-day practices last week and are preparing for their first game, August 27th, when they will take on Tyler.
"We've been facing temperature's in the 100s every day, but it just makes you tougher and gets you ready that much faster," Carlisle said. "You just have to keep hydrated because you know you have to put in the time now in order to be ready this fall."
Carlisle is on pace to graduate in December and he will have three years to play two wherver he ends up.
