I was able to see Carlos’ love and dedication to his players in my time together with him in Memphis. Watching him grow in the profession has been true evidence of his drive and focus. He is a servant leader and will do a great job with our running backs.

“Our running back room has a lot of talent, and I am really excited for our student-athletes to learn from a teacher of Coach Locklyn’s caliber. He is going to develop some serious playmakers for the Ducks, but most importantly, some terrific young men.
