Golson: It is really great for our team. Coming in here we knew we had sort of an advantage on special teams and on offense and defense it was going to be basically equal. The better team I think won. We came out and played well and won.
Do you know which sport you want to play in college yet?
Golson: Not too much. I will go to my senior year and then decide.
Do you want to play both right now?
Who do you have offers from right now in basketball?
Golson: As far as I know Virginia Tech called. A couple of other schools. I can't remember.
Who has offered in football?
Golson: A lot actually. North Carolina, Virginia Tech, Clemson, South Carolina and a couple of other ACC and SEC schools.
How did it feel to play in Death Valley today?
Golson: Wow, this is great. This is a great, great atmosphere. I like it. I really love this place around the stadium.
