ANN ARBOR -- Michigan redshirt freshman defensive end Chris Wormley discusses his emergence this season.

How have you adjusted to playing again this season?

Wormley: “Spring ball starting off, I was a little shaky. But through camp I was feeling great. Things were feeling great. The first four game felt pretty good. We’re just looking forward to the Big Ten season.”

How good did it feel to have that statistical impact a couple weeks ago against UConn?

Wormley: “It felt good, I got a little excited on the field. I tried to help out the team as much as I can. But like I said, we’re coming off the bye and just ready to play Minnesota.”

What do you have to do to be that layer that contributes every week?

Wormely: “Definitely think it’s all about watching film, see your opponents, studying your opponents and know what they’re going to be doing before the ball is snapped. Playing physical, paying more aggressive. Like I said, knowing your opponent.”

What did you guys do as defensive line against Connecticut that you weren’t doing the first couple games far as getting to the quarterback?

Wormely: “Coach Mattison, he is great defensive coordinator, he had us back to the fundamentals and techniques of the pass rush. Bigger, faster first step. You know, just being more aggressive and working on our pass moves.”

I know there is a heavy rotation on the defensive front, but how much does it mean to you to be in the game in the fourth quarter during crunch time?

Wormely: "It means that coach Mattison trusts me. It’s an honor, like you said, to be out there in the fourth quarter, getting a sack and making plays and just helping the team win.”
