Chambers working hard
After an interesting spring that saw the arrival of a new coaching staff and different schemes, Chambers is encouraged by the direction of the Husky program. "I thought spring went real well," Chambers told Dawgman.com. "Everybody knew we had that quarterback epidemic and that was a struggle last year. But guys really improved over the break. Johnny stepped in and did really well, Isaiah (Stanback) did pretty well. All of them improved. Casey (Paus) improved a tremendous amount and looked a lot more confident.
"I'm feeling good. Our receivers are improving a lot, so I thought it was a very good spring. Things are going pretty well."
One problem Chambers had was dealing with the speed of the Division-I level of play. "Things are a lot slower for me now," Chambers said laughing as he recalled his first year in the program. "When I came here my freshman year things were at hyper-speed. Things are a lot slower now; it feels more like it did in high school. You feel more comfortable and you can make the adjustments you need to make."
Along with the new coaching staff, a new position coach was brought in to shape the group that has a lot of bodies but has lacked the production necessary to help the offense. "I love (wide receivers) coach (Eric) Yarber," Chambers said. "Everything was fine last year, but all the new stuff he is putting in doesn't just work better, it's easier to work with.
"Like me, I'm a tall guy and I have a longer stride. He makes it so we keep our feet moving through the turns so it's easier to get out of my breaks. I'm not the quickest guy so that helps me a lot."
Chambers also likes the style of Yarber's coaching methods. "He's real down to earth. He's so cool," Chambers stated. "He doesn't yell a lot, he teaches us and I like that environment more. He's got that pro experience and he has confidence in us. He tells us that we don't have much respect but he says, ‘I can see you guys are going to do something big,'."
As far as the summer workouts are concerned, Chambers is looking forward to working out with the team this summer and improving. "We have a two-week break until (June) 20th, when summer school starts. It sounds like everyone is back and we are going to do that until fall camp begins."
Chambers expects big things from the Huskies this fall and Husky fans can only hope he is right.
