Raiders, Cantrell interested in expanding role for young receiver

Don Williams, Lubbock Avalanche-Journal

Backing up unanimous All-American Jace Amaro, Cantrell didn’t have a chance to show much last season, just glimpses here and there.

But with Amaro an early entry to the NFL after a monster season, there’s room for the 6-foot-3, 208-pound Cantrell to have more of an impact this season. Tech coaches moved senior-to-be Bradley Marquez into Amaro’s spot, but the door’s open for Cantrell to be in the rotation as the No. 2 Y inside receiver in 2014.

WHAT IS A PERSONAL STRENGTH THAT YOU WILL BRING TO THE TABLE AT TECH?

“A family mentality. When I play on a team I really want to feel like every game that I come out I am playing for people I care about. People that I am willing to go to bat for. I mean most football players should have that mentality. I take it personal if we get disrespected as a unit, especially as a defense. I mean as a whole team, I get that concept of being a family as a whole team but at the same time as a defense I feel like we should be a tight knit group and all do our job at the same time and when I come in I hope to have that effect on the defense.”
