Profile of QB Hendrix: "Just get the ball to our horses."

Lou Somogyi at Blue Gold Illustrated has an interesting, thorough article profiling QB candidate Andrew Hendrix. Here's an excerpt: "An optimistic upbeat sort — similar to former Moeller High and Notre Dame head coach Gerry Faust (1981-85) — Hendrix said he was surprised to see on film his body language last year when he didn’t execute correctly or if a play broke down. "'I can tell I’m better tempered,' Hendrix said. 'I don’t like to think of myself as a guy that would get down on myself like that, but I could see it and it’s such an easy fix … You’re going to make mistakes, you’re going to learn from them. How you’re going to respond to a negative play is going to be key.' "Even during seven-on-seven drills on Wednesday, Hendrix threw the ball away on one occasion while following Kelly’s dicta that sometimes 'zero is good yardage' as opposed to turning the ball over. With veterans such as All-America Tyler Eifert, 1,000-yard rusher Cierre Wood, Theo Riddick and explosive youngsters such as George Atkinson III, Amir Carlisle and even freshman Davonte’ Neal as targets, the foremost mandate by Kelly to the quarterbacks is not to gum the works. "'[The quarterbacks] don’t have to win the game; we can just get the ball to our horses and let the playmakers do their job, and minimize mistakes,' said Hendrix of trying to slice last year’s 29 turnovers into appreciably less."
