“It was a soothing thing, working on cars, it being quiet and everything,” Amos said. “Being able to work with my grandpa, he was my father-figure growing up, and it just gave me a great feeling.
“I’m a hands-on person. I like to get in there and work on stuff with my hands and get dirty.”

But once he’s in, Amos will always give the Buffs — and the other team — his best shot.
