FROM BARBERS'S HEAD COACH CALVIN EVERETT
"Damion Barber brings speed, power, aggression and a relentless pass rush on the quarterback. He's also extremely versatile along the defensive line. He'll be able to play multiple positions. His work ethic is great. He has grown from a young man into a hard-working young man. His work ethic right now is definitely where it needs to be."
