“It was a memorial-type deal,” Woods told The News-Star Wednesday. “Coach Greg, he got to Carroll my senior year and he really helped me develop a lot in a short amount of time. He taught some very valuable things that I’m still using in college. I really appreciate him for that.

“When I get my first pick in college, we got to do something special. That’s what we did.”
