Your sixth interception of the year. Not one you had to go up for this time, it more came to you. What did you see?

“Well, Tony (Jefferson) tipped it, I believe. I just saw the ball and went and got it. I overplayed a route that the receiver was going to run and then he just cut off of me and then I just saw the ball. That's basically what I've been doing all year. I play safety, so for me it's about not letting balls get behind me, not letting receivers get behind me and just play my position.”

Were you beat on that?

“The receiver played off me. He even said the route that I broke on he was about to run and I went back and got him. I was beat. I got it.”

Your last game in the crimson and cream. How do you want to be remembered?

“Just a hard player, hard worker. I fought through a lot since I've been here. I never stopped. ... For me, I want people to know I grinded from my freshman year to my senior year and didn't stop and I earned everything that I got.”
