Coach Talk

“We talk about invisible preparation — a lot of stuff that people don’t see that results in what people do see — and Carlos is the epitome of that. He works tremendously hard at every aspect of his craft. His arrow’s pointing up. He keeps getting better and better. When all is said and done, he’s going to be a really good collegiate prospect.”   — Gateway head coach Don Holl


Diggs possesses strong coverage skills with the ability to quickly react. Smooth footwork allows him to stay in stride in coverage. Has good ball skills and awareness. Quick closing speed and strong arm tackler.
