Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield (6) gets rid of the ball as Kansas defensive end Dorance Armstrong Jr. (2) closes in during the second quarter on Saturday, Nov. 18, 2017 at Memorial Stadium.
Dorance Armstrong’s junior season with the Kansas football program hasn’t played out the way the massive defensive end envisioned. As his coaches adjusted schemes to make up for the unit’s shortcomings, they revised Armstrong’s responsibilities. Consequently, the sacks and tackles for loss that defined his breakout sophomore year often have been replaced by near misses and frustration. The 6-foot-4, 246-pound Houston native, though, hopes all of this will ultimately benefit him as a player. By Benton Smith
