Nebraska may be moving to more of a pro-style offense but quarterback Tommy Armstrong still has the green light to make plays with his feet. As a sophomore, Armstrong passed for nearly 27 hundred yards and added another 705 yards on the ground to go along with six touchdowns.
Husker offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf says Armstrong’s athletic ability is an added weapon for the offense.
“We’ve known in our past that a guy like that can really hurt a defense if things open up and he takes off running”, said Langsdorf. “We’re not going to turn him into a statue so we’re all for him making plays in the passing game and running the ball.”
Langsdorf says the coaches do want Armstrong to pick his spots and try to limit the number of hits he takes in a game.
