Quintez Cephus is one of the best combatants to remember this year, and already, he’s off to a blazing start with the team. That’s by design, however, in a room that seems to value the competition they provide.

Speaking with the media after practice on Wednesday, June 8, Cephus discussed the newly intense roster battle at his spot. As he explained, competition isn’t something to be feared, but rather, something he believes can help make the team better on the field. Already, that’s something Cephus sees helping the team.
“We got a lot of guys that can do a lot of different things on the perimeter. It is competitive. You want to be in a room where it’s competition every day and you know, that’s what we come out here to do. Who can make the plays and make it fun and make guys get better? It’s great having a lot of great weapons in the room,” Cephus said.
In the spirit of competition, it seems everyone is trying to make the one play that impresses everybody else. To that end, Cephus sees the competition he faces as natural and positive in the spirit of competition.
“We all watch the film. We all come out here wanting to compete and want to show up on the film when we go back in the meeting room, so that’s why we come out here to make plays and compete with each other,” he explained.
If competition and one-upmanship is a goal in the room, it’s possible Cephus may have made the best opening moves of anyone on the team thus far.
