Northern Illinois head coach Thomas Hammock  calls out some instructions during the teams first spring practice Wednesday, March 22, 2023, in the Chessick Practice Center at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb.

“It kind of stepped up my role of leadership. Me being a majority of the carries last year and coming back this year, I’m kind of leading guys like Billy and Nash. I’ve kind of been stepping up, being more verbal, kind of coaching guys up when we’re out there on plays.”
