“When I walk across the stripe and onto the field, there is only one particular speed and energy. I bring the full scope of all my talents, energy and passion into that arena. I believe I was brought onto the earth to teach young men how to be men in football.”
“I’m just glad for me and my family because we are where we want to be. We’re at UConn. That’s exactly the right fit for us. I’m exactly the right fit for this team, and they’re exactly the right fit for me. We’re going to grow together and create championships here.”
“You make winning choices and you have competitive environments in your meetings, you have competitive environments in your winter conditioning, etc.”
“I don’t want to minimize the talent on the team right now. There’s talent on this team right now. Everybody on this team has got value. Everybody on the team is going to be successful at something. We’ve just got to find what it is.”
