Farniok is part of the attack line that has helped NU averaged 5.8 yards per shot against Ohio State.
“I’ve always enjoyed these kinds of challenges,” he said. “I learned a little from it and I hope to improve from it.”
The next step for young road liners: Redshirt first year students Bryce Benhart and Ethan Piper both spent a lot of time with the State of Ohio, with Benhart starting right and Piper alternating with Boe Wilson at left back.
The goal of the two now, according to a teammate and a coach, is to keep improving.
Farniok talked about what he wanted to see against Northwestern. “I think we made a few flaws and I think we̵7;ve done a great job striving to improve what we need.”
While not having a single game last week deprived both players of their chances of getting more live game representation, Frost remains optimistic about their futures.
“Those guys are going to be good players for us for a while,” said Frost. “We will continue to try to give them experience so we can improve.”
