“(Pioneer Press Player of the Year) is an award neither Tim nor Ryan won. He’s into the weights much the same as Ryan. He’s the most developed of the McManus brothers coming in. He’s growing and physically developing but he’s still a typical McManus. He’s very, very athletic, was successful as a quarterback and even punted a little bit so he can play a variety of positions. We see him as a cover guy but he also has punt return and kickoff return capabilities.”
