Zero words and one expressionless stare into the eyes of the Troy High starting offensive line is all senior running back Joey Ward needs to do in order to make his point inside the huddle.
"I just look at them," Ward said.
"I get that look a lot," Troy senior tackle Tafari Nedrick said.
Ward's message is simply to provide him a small crease, just a sliver of room for him to exploit.
"He is always hungry for the ball," Troy senior quarterback Joe Casale said. "Once he gets it into his hands, he can do damage. If we give him blocks, he'll make something happen."
"We already know he is going to bring it. We all have to bring it too," Nedrick said.
