Running back Cory Ross: 

On rushing during game:

“I think our scheme was perfect for their defense. We stretched everything to make my runs. It just went well. We just had holes in there for me to find, and that’s what I did.”

 

On being down 28-17 in the game:

“We played this season as all day fighters all year long. We played a fourth quarter game, we’re a fourth quarter team. And we showed that tonight.”

 

On his last game:

“That game was huge, man. I wanted to have a great game and I wanted us to win. Whatever happened, I wanted to do everything I had to do in order for us to win. If that means running the football as much as I did, then I’d do it; if it means blocking, then I’d do it.”

 

Strong Safety Daniel Bullocks
On team focus before the game:

“We just wanted to win this game. We were calm before the game. Everyone was just relaxed and stuff, you know. We were just ready for the game. We were going to do whatever it took to win.”

 

On momentum into next season:

“We’ve got a young team. This game is going to give us a lot of confidence and motivation for next season. We’re going to be ready.”
