ARMWOOD HEAD COACH SEAN CALLAHAN
"I had Justin slotted on the defensive side of the ball when I first got him, but we quickly switched him to offensive tackle when we saw the quickness and mobility he showed.
"Justin possesses very good feet and has become much better as a technician. He's particularly effective in the passing game.
"Justin is probably destined to move inside and I think he can prosper there. Like most of them, he needs to get more physical and study film, but I think Justin is going to be a very good player for the Commodores.
