Everything Steve Sarkisian said in his week one press conference

Game week is finally here as Texas is set to host Louisiana Monroe in the 2022 season opener on Saturday.

Steve Sarkisian addressed the media on Monday ahead of the Longhorns’ first game.

Sark praised starting quarterback Quinn Ewers for his composure since being named the starter. He feels good about Ewers’ progression at this point in time.

Last Saturday’s mock game went well according to Sarkisian. It gave the young players an opportunity to get a feel for the gameday routine at the college level.

The kicking battle is expected to continue throughout the week. Issac Pearson appears to be doing well in the punting role but Will Stone and Brett Auburn are competing for the placekicker spot.

Sarkisian feels like the team is in a good spot ahead of the new year. He mentioned the culture is at an “all-time high” since his time as the Texas head coach.

Here is a look at everything Sarkisian discussed on Monday.
