“I thought he played with a lot of guts,” co-offensive coordinator Gunter Brewer said of his quarterback. “There are things he does that people don’t get to see every day in practice — his athletic ability. He runs the ball extremely well when he gets the opportunity.
“He had some mistakes, but that’s because he was trying to make plays. We knew we had to do that against their defense.”
