OU freshman Roy Finch shakes off rust to dazzle in debut

Three questions with OU freshman RB Roy Finch:

After missing close to two months because of a broken ankle how do you feel you played?

I felt I did pretty good. Coming back from the injury, I came out with the mindset to not be worried about the injury and just come out and go full speed.

Did it take long to adjust after being sidelined so long?

The first play is crazy. Your adrenaline is rushing. The fans are screaming your name. But after the second or third carry I started to really feel it, get my legs up under me. When you go out there you're nervous, a little jittery. After that third carry I really started to settle down, just like high school.

How frustrating was it to have to wait this long to make your debut?

It was pretty frustrating. But thanks to my trainers and thanks to my coaches and teammates being a positive influence on me. I thank God for putting me through this because without Him none of this would be possible.
