SALT LAKE CITY – Super freshman Utah cornerback Clark Phillips III has found inspiration from Devin Lloyd’s leadership of a type of leader he wants to be.

Devin Lloyd is one of the captains but is one of, if not the top leader of the entire football team. Clark Phillips gets to play on defense with Lloyd every game and sees his leadership first hand.

That was one of the many topics discussed on the latest episode of “Faith, Family and Football.” You can listen to the full show, below.

“Devin brings confidence to the defense that I aspire to bring to the defense,” said Phillips. “At some point, I aspire to bring it when I’m a captain or when I’m a team leader like he is because we felt his loss even when he just missed a half when he was ejected for targeting. We felt that Devin wasn’t on the field, wasn’t crazy, but even if he’s not saying anything, he brings a presence that is definitely felt and so just having him on the field makes the unit a lot stronger with play and then just with confidence as well. You’ve seen the plays that he’s made and then I feel like he’s that puzzle piece that you need that’s crucial to making the whole puzzle full.”

Phillips is the only freshman (or super freshman) that is on the leadership council at Utah. Being around Lloyd will help Phillips become an even better leader and eventually a team captain.
