Demonte King playing with a bad shoulder led the team with 10 tackles. Wren had 7 tackles from the NT position. That is quite an achievement for a guy battling linemen and absorbing blockers all game.
And I am really happy with Gonzales. His use of his entire roster is a refreshing departure from the Graham era. During 4th qtr crunch time, fresh backups were taking critical snaps. For example, Wren was on the sideline and a fresh Forman was on the field for the Catís last drive. Harrison, Lawal and Thomas all make 4th quarter contributions.
I always felt that Graham stifled player development by his playing a short roster. Players have a different practice mindset if they know that they have no chance of playing. And they are more engaged if they know that they may take meaningful snaps. If Gonzales stays, the ASU defense will have a bright future.
