Larimore has goals

Sophomore linebacker, Patrick Larimore is having a big spring. More than once, UCLA head coach Rick Neuheisel has commented on his play. He has been very aggressive this spring, a couple of times too aggressive and he received an earful from coaches. Like many of the younger players, Larimore came into spring with a hunger. The reason for his hunger, Larimore made very clear.

"I wanted to prove the coaches that I know all the plays as Mike backer and that I can take the spot," Larimore said. "I want to prove that I can start at middle linebacker at UCLA."

One thing that has been noticeable this spring is Larimore is playing faster, meaning he has a better grasp of the defense. Even this Larimore's improvement has been obvious, he still isn't taking anything for granted.
