WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (March 26, 2012) - With spring practices rapidly approaching the midway point, William and Mary standout wide receiver Ryan Moody recently sat down with TribeAthletics.com to discuss his offseason preparation as well as his future goals both on and off the field.

Coaches Call:

Offensive Coordinator / Wide Receivers Coach, Zbig Kepa:

"We have some experience in the current wide receivers group, but the majority of the depth chart hasn't seen much time on the field. That being said, we have an athletic group with good ball skills and I expect it to be an impact position this fall. Our staff will be working hard to turn this potential into production during the spring."
