Sophomore Defensive End Charles Tapper

“I feel like we did a pretty good job getting a lot of pressure on the quarterback. We also made some mistakes, so we have a lot of work this week, working on plays where the quarterback didn’t have pressure. We should make some of the plays with Chuka [Ndulue] coming back.”

“We did a good job. They were a great offensive line with a great quarterback, so I feel like getting a shutout against them is a pretty great job.”

“Pitching a shutout against Louisiana Monroe is a great feeling. Beating the teams they beat last year, they’re a pretty great team. They have a great offensive line, a great quarterback, their running backs are pretty good. To get a shutout against them is pretty good accomplishment.”

Senior Running Back Damien Williams

“The offensive line did great getting their blocks and pushing guys, and I feel like we had a lot more running game, so I guess Coach [Stoops] saw that and just wanted us to keep dominating.”

“We just have to talk about the gameplan and watch a lot of film. We have to see how their defense comes at us, so we just have to get into the film room.”

Senior Wide Receiver Jalen Saunders

“I think Trevor did a great job. He has something we’re not used to seeing, our quarterback take off and use his legs, but it’s very exciting, and it moves the chains.”

“I’m really impressed with our run game. It makes the safeties come down because they have to play the run, and then it leaves two cornerbacks on an island, so it’s just one-on-one.”

Redshirt Freshman Quarterback Trevor Knight

“In the first game you come out and hope everything goes well. We struggled a little early, but we got comfortable as the game went on, and we were able to make some big plays. The guys blocking did a heck of a job, so we were able to get it going.”

“We’ll work hard this week to get more timing down. We’ve just got to connect on those deep throws because we have to hit our shots.”

“It was really exciting to get out there. The last game I got hit in was during high school, so it’s been a long time. To get out there and get hit around a little bit felt good.”
