"You look where he came from as a walk-on, he’s a four-year starter. He had a 20-win season last year. He gives you everything he has, which is the thing I love the most about Justin. He’s extremely emotional, which is fine. I have no problem with that because you know he’s going to give you his best effort. When he’s not emotional, then you’re worried. But when he’s fighting for every point and when he’s not giving an inch – that’s what I like." - Jeff Zinn
