When he needs to be, Chris Tutt is calm and confident in the huddle, sharing advice and keeping his team optimistic with encouraging words. But when it’s time to be a Bulldog, Tutt will change his demeanor.
As quarterback, Tutt likes to have the ball in his paws. That means his game has to have some bite, especially when his teammates need the tough yards.
Tutt is a leader of his pack.
“I talk to them – I pick them up,” Tutt said. “I tell them everything is going to be all right. ‘Don’t look at the scoreboard. We only have 2 minutes left in the fourth quarter, so we’re going to have to pick up the pace. Get ready to score another touchdown to win the game.’ ”
Tutt is also fiercely loyal and trusts those around him. He also believes in his fans because he knows they’ll fill the Brickyard on Friday nights.
“They back us up,” Tutt said. “They help us out. They come to all of our games and support us. Even though we might not end up with a good season, they’re still there.”
