Canzater explains what he enjoys about playing on both sides of the ball.

“Playing running back gives me opportunities to run and catch the ball,” Canzater said. “Playing middle linebacker gives me a good chance to get into the backfield and make good tackles.”

Canzater has shown marked improvement in the past year.

“Compared to my last football season, I would say my vision, strength, speed, and play making has gotten much better,” Canzater said. “This shows growth in my skills.”

That being said, Canzater is still on the grind to hone his craft so that he can elevate himself to an even higher level.

“I am looking to improve on my ball carrying skills and footwork,” Canzater said. “I’m going to work on my catching skills and conserving the clock in close game situations.”
