The Cal Bears will be going through plenty of transitions in 2013. They’ll have their first new head coach in over a decade in Sonny Dykes who will be bringing new offensive and defensive philosophies as he overhauls the program in Berkeley. All that change will bring opportunities to some, and wide receiver Bryce Treggs is ready to step up and break out and 2013.
Treggs saw limited opportunities during his freshman season as part of a crowd of young receivers clamoring to get on the field in 2012 behind Keenan Allen. He made 21 catches for 216 yards with a touchdown, but missed the final three games of the season with an injury to his ankle.
But now Allen is gone, Treggs is healthy and stronger than ever and Dykes’ offense is picking up the tempo to put some points on the board next season. Treggs is penciled as one of the starters as spring practice opens and is looking forward to the opportunities the new offense will afford him.
In an interview with CalBears.com, Treggs praised the way the new offense was coming together:
“The offense is coming along really well. Our tempo is what I think is going to make the difference this year. We line up so fast, and we run plays so fast at such a quick tempo that it will be hard for defenses to keep up. It makes our job that much easier when the defense gets tired.”
Treggs will also look to become a leader of a very young receiving corps that gained invaluable experience a season ago. They’ll have to collectively turn to that experience and their athletic ability to make this offense go next fall.
Dykes brings a fast-paced, high-octane offense with him to Berkeley that is designed to pick up yards and points in bunches. Bryce Treggs is ready to lead the Cal charge in this wide-open offense and reap all the benefits that comes with it.
