Jad Dean Post Game Interview

True freshman Jad Dean did his best to help the Tigers defeat Tennessee, as he sent several kickoffs into the endzone. CUTigers.com caught up with the talented place kicker after the Peach Bowl victory over the Vols.

How does it feel to beat such a highly ranked team in the Peach Bowl when very few gave you a chance?
Jad Dean: Yeah exactly. It's just a great feeling. After the South Carolina game we thought we would have earned some respect. But then they come back and they were still doubting us. Nobody thought we had a chance this week. The only people that believed were the players and the coaches. We came back and showed everybody what we are really made of.

How does it feel to defeat two teams ranked in the top 6 in your last 4 games?
Jad Dean: It's just an awesome feeling. I'm so proud to be a part of it. I'm glad to help out in any way that I could.

Talk about how you were able to send most of tonight's kickoffs into the endzone
Jad Dean: You can't ask for better field conditions than a dome, especially with the new turf. You don't have to worry about a plant or the wind. You couldn't ask for anything better as far as kicking. Are you looking forward to getting a chance to kick field goals next season?
Jad Dean: I can't wait for it.
