"I've had the conversation with (the coaches) about it," Wilson said. "They don't need someone who is going to go out there and be Mike Vick and run the ball like crazy. And I'm not the slowest quarterback and I'm not the fastest quarterback. I can pick up first downs if we need to. I can run the zone read. I feel like I'm just as capable as somebody else is. Somebody might be faster and shifty, but I can still get the job done."
Here are some notable players who should stitch their names into the minds of Orange fans.
Gary Battle listed Ohio State, UConn, Virginia, Villanova, Michigan, Syracuse and Indiana as those "working the hardest."
Goalkeeper Courtney Brosnan recently traveled to Holland as part of the Ireland U19 squad for the elite qualifying phase for the U19 European Championship. In the elite qualifying phase, the top 24 teams were split into six groups of four teams each.

He visited campus over winter. By the end of his visit, the school ranked at the top of a list of schools including Missouri and Miami (Ohio). Having little football kicking experience, no school offered him a scholarship. He said Syracuse stayed in contact the most throughout the recruiting process, which made it stand out even more when making a final decision.
"Yeah, I'm going to try to play," he said. "But I don't know where. I'm just going to take my time about it. There's a process. I'm going to talk to people I have to talk to. I'm going to get a lot of help from the people around me, so I'm not going to hurry the process."
The collection of jerseys-designs feature primary home and away renderings, as well as some alternates. Once I got started I couldn’t help get a little carried away creating/ideating scenarios, color pallets, design pairings; particularly when there’s liberty to fabricate settings for when/how some of these sweaters might-have, or ‘could’ see actual ice-time.
