COACH COLE ON JUSTIN: "Justin is a guy that we'll be talking about being another USAFA success story by the time he is done. Not really recruited and without having immediate success in college, Justin followed the example of some of his more developed veteran teammates by putting his head down and going to work. He lets his legs do the talking and he's extremely committed to developing his ability. I think he may be surprised with how far his approach will take him."
