The official stat book says that E.J. Levenberry made his first career start last season at Boston College.
Levenberry, though, doesn't quite see it that way.
“I went in for one play,” Levenberry said with a smile. “I don't count that as a start.”
Levenberry, a 6-3, 225-pound linebacker from the Washington, D.C., area, is hoping that his sophomore year brings some starts he can be proud of.
Early in fall camp, Levenberry and junior Reggie Northrup have rotated into a starting lineup that must find replacements for senior leaders Christian Jones and Telvin Smith.
Levenberry, who had 39 tackles as a freshman, believes that his mental acumen can give him an edge.
“That’s a big advantage for me this year – the mental part of the game,” he said. “The physical part, anybody can do the physical part. But the mental part is really important in this game.”Jameis Winston Amari Cooper Brett Hundley
