“That’s pretty incredible, man. I didn’t know how into that he was. I went to his house one day and he was talking about it. That’s pretty cool. My hat goes off to him.”

He said he’s never talked politics with Runyan, but knows that he’s a leader.

“He’s always been a leader. The thing that I respect the most about Jon was that he’ll say something, but then he’ll get in the trenches with you. He’s not the kind of guy that’ll say something and won’t do it. So he’s definitely going to follow through with what he says. He’s going to fight for everything, he’s going to put the team first. And that’s all kind of stuff that I respected most about him.”
