“I’m looking forward to it,” O’Neill said during the Broncos’ media day on Friday. “I’m a lot more confident in myself. I’m not second-guessing myself as much. I’ve just been trying to improve my game overall and become a better football player.”
WMU head coach Bill Cubit has noticed O’Neill’s improvements over the past year. It’s not hard to notice O’Neill — he stands 6-foot-8 and tips the scales at 307 pounds.
“That first year after the transfer, he didn’t play very well,” Cubit said. “In the spring, he struggled a little. In the fall, he started getting it. This past spring he played well, and now he’s playing really well. He’s a guy who’s put the time and effort into it.
“Now we’re counting on him being one of the best kids in the league.”
