"I knew he was excited today," said quarterback Deonte Shorts. "When he found out he was eligible, he came to me and said, 'Man, just give me the ball.' So, I gave him the ball and he showed me what he could do with it."
"Just the determination and the willpower to get a yard is what you see when he runs the football," said head coach Dawson Odums. "And, you can see why he went to Pittsburgh, too. So, there's a reason he's a transfer. So at this level, he should be playing up to his Pittsburgh talent, not down to the talent that he was facing today."
"We've been emphasizing the run game and I believe this week we got some momentum and we were able to run the ball, so hopefully, we can take that momentum and continue to build on this game," running back Brian McCain said.
"I'm not about pleasing the scoreboard. I'm about winning the game. And at the end of the day, we know that our backfield set is one of the strongest segments on our team. And, if that o-line can open up holes and we can run the football, we like our chances," Odums added.
