K’Rojhn Calbert was at the Warren County High School baseball game Friday night. Southern Standard on Sports caught up with Calbert for an update on the coaching change in the UT Vols football program and his future plans.

Southern Standard: What has been the biggest difference for you as a football player since coach Jeremy Pruitt was fired and the new head coach, Josh Heupel, has taken over the program?

Calbert: For me, it has been relationships. When a coach comes in and says he wants to build relationships and chemistry, that is welcoming as a player. There are things in your mind that he may not be able to see, understand what I am saying? For me, it is already better. 

Southern Standard: Right now you are a football player. You have one year of eligibility. Are you thinking about something after that?

Calbert: Right now my mindset is to graduate in December. And after that, sit down and look at what I need to do. Yes, for the combine. Right now I want to put my name in the draft and go on and do bigger and better things. I am definitely stronger now (than in high school). The SEC definitely wears and tears on your body. 

Southern Standard: What is your schedule now? How much time do you have off?

Calbert: We have the whole month of May off. For me, I am staying to work on myself. I am going back to Knoxville after this weekend. I will be in the weight room, yes sir. 

Southern Standard: If we got down in a three-point stance right now, do you think you could knock me backwards?

Calbert: Laughs. For sure!
