Video: USD Toreros RB Dallas Kessman & Safety Matt Miller



 
We caught up with Junior running back Dallas Kessman (#20) and Senior safety Matt Miller (#6) after a USD fall camp session to discuss goals and expectations for the upcoming season, new players stepping up to fill voids left by graduating seniors, and more.

After leading the team in rushing yards as a redshirt freshman in 2012, Kessman was forced to miss the 2013 season due to an injury suffered during the opening game. He'll be looking to remain healthy in 2014 as he competes to regain his role as the primary rusher.

Miller had a stellar 2013 season leading the team in total tackles (90) while recording three pass break-ups and two forced fumbles. With seven defensive starters graduating, the All-PFL Honorable Mention is ready to take on a leadership position.
