Nick Holt quotes

Tuesday means the weekly chance for media to talk to UW defensive coordinator Nick Holt. Here’s some of what he had to say:
On the defense coming on late this year as it did last season: “They’ve just been working hard, and the hard work’s paying off. They’ve been very coachable. It’s a mark that some good things are happening in the program. Kids are getting better as they’re getting older. They’re getting better at their stuff.”
On if the defense is coming together as a unit: “I guess. I don’t know. They’re playing with confidence. I don’t know. I can’t answer that. They’re doing a nice job. They’re playing with confidence and being coached. And we haven’t done anything different.”
On Chris Robinson working with the starters today:Alameda’s (Ta’amu) ankle was sore today. So that’s why Chris was with the ones. He’s played more and more the last couple of weeks, but he’s just in there because Alameda was resting his ankle. He’ll hopefully be back tomorrow.”
On if Ta’amu was hurt Monday: “No, I guess he kind of hurt it on Saturday. But it kind of flamed up after yesterday’s practice. I don’t know if it’s anything major. It might be a case of some gout or something. Evidently. You’ll have to ask the trainers.”
On Semisi Tokolahi moving into the starting lineup: “You know what? He’s playing with more confidence. If there’s one guy on defense who’s really improved, it’s him. He’s really playing up to what we thought he would be. He’s a good kid, a good athlete, and he’s playing with confidence. He’s doing a nice job for us.”
On Quinton Richardson improving the last few weeks: “The last couple weeks, he’s been really doing a good job. He’s probably our most improved player on defense. He’s come a long way. He started off shaky in the year, but he kept battling. He’s been coachable. We kept giving him a lot of opportunities. And now it’s paying off.”
