It's a whole different level, that's for sure. Now you step up to being to not being one of the best on the team, unlike in high school. Now everyone came from being the best at their high school. It's a lot faster, more aggressive. Now I just got hit the weights harder, condition a little more because it is going to come quick and I have to be ready.
