DURING

Brown: “Our coaches tell us (to) try to run in there and make the kicker shank it or something like that, and that's what happened. I got pressure on the kicker, and he kicked it wide left.”

Collins: “I just gave a little push and then jumped as high as I could to lean out, because I have a long reach. Unfortunately, we didn't get the block, but I think we threw it off a little bit with our hands and just our pressure and our presence of being in there through the kick. (That) made him nervous and made it go wide.”

AFTER

Brown: “I was like, ‘Our offense is about to score.' I was just excited, not only for us, but for the people came down to watch.”

Collins: “At first, I thought it went through, because I missed the block. … But then I heard the crowd go crazy, and I looked up at the scoreboard and I see that he didn't make it and I was like, ‘Oh, yeah! We still got a chance. We just won the game.'”
