The Baylor Bears allowed the most sacks in the Big 12 a season ago, giving up an average of over three per game.
After dealing with depth issues throughout the 2017 campaign the offensive line is back with numbers and a renewed sense of urgency as they finish out spring practice.
“We take a lot of pride in what we do,” Junior Sam Tecklenburg said. “I think we learned a lot from last year. There’s a lot of time we feel like we let the rest of the team down. I don’t have a problem saying that, we did at some points. I think we’re ready. I think we have a lot of guys that are ready to get back out there and play some games and prove, what kind of football players we are.”
Shawn Bell takes over his new role as offensive line coach under the watchful eye of George DeLeon. Bell diving head-first into his new job and looks forward to having his name attached to that offensive line unit.
“That’s why I came here,” Bell said. “I want that opportunity and I want that pressure, this group is under my name. I want my group, my lineman group to be the best in the Big 12, the best in the country. So That pride is something I take a lot of joy in.”
