"He kind of had trouble with hand-eye coordination and spatial skills, like adjusting to the ball and stuff," Damico said. "So I challenged him, and said, 'Hey, Darrius, you can run fast and you've got a great body, but you can't catch.' He would catch 100 balls after practice to become better at it. In track and field, if you told him that his starts were terrible, he'd stay out there for three hours to try to get his starts right. … He's willing to work hard, and we're still seeing that every day."
