"When we were running the plays, I knew the line was going to execute. I knew everything else was going to be perfectly aligned and all I had to do was run the ball. On that 96-yard run, all I did was run straight down the field. I didn't have to make anybody miss. That is a sign of great execution by everyone else, and that makes it easy."
On what he was thinking during his runs:
"In my mind, I was thinking I couldn't let anyone get close to me so I just kept running as hard as I could." On Army's improved blocking:
"For running backs specifically, there was a big focus on blocking in practice this week. We knew that we could be better blockers than we had been in the previous few games. That was the focus, and we came out here and executed today."
On whether or not he knew he had broken the Army single game rushing record during the game:
"I had no idea. People keep telling me that I broke the Army rushing record for a single game. Knowing all the people that have been here before me, it hasn't really sunk in yet. I'm just happy we won the game and I could be out there with my brothers going as hard as we could every single play."
