DeKALB – Northern Illinois redshirt senior safety Trayshon Foster has been coaxing his teammates in the secondary to understand a simple concept.
Missed chances at interceptions are unacceptable.
“You never want to get your interception and drop it,” Foster said. “At the end of the day, you want your offense to have the ball as much as possible, so anything we can do to take the ball away from the opposing offense and get the ball back to our offense is excellent. If we don’t reward ourselves, we don’t reward our offense. Ultimately, we don’t reward the team. If you have the chance to make that play, you have to make that play.”
