ITV Q & A: Broderick Clark

As one of the nation's top kick returners, sophomore Broderick Clark knew he'd have more of an opportunity to shine at receiver in 2003. Clark visited with ITV following Thursday's practice and talked about his play at receiver, the Kentucky game and more. <P> <B>EXTRA: <a href="">ITV Gallery: September 4th Practice</a>&nbsp;<img src="">

ITV: Everyone knew coming into the season what you are capable of returning kicks, but against Kentucky you proved what you are capable of at receiver as well.

Broderick Clark: My mindset coming into the game was to go out and catch the ball. We have a long season in front of us so I need to continue to work and improve, but I had a good night that night....I didn't drop any balls, I ran good routes. I'm just thankful that coach had the faith in me to keep throwing me the rock.

ITV: You had one of the plays of the game against Kentucky, when the team could have easily have gone three and out on the first series, but you hooked up with Stefan LeFors and made a great cath for 31 yards.

Clark: When we came out of the huddle, my eyes got big and I thought to myself, 'it's time to make a play!' I saw that they were going to press me, so I just took off and was able to make a great catch.

ITV: In talking with J.R. Russell after the game, he mentioned the ongoing tradition of having great receivers at Louisville.

Clark: We'll always be the AFROS (America's Finest Receivers on Saturdays). We look at ourselves as one of the elite receiving corp in the country and we need to continue that tradition.

ITV: Talk about the unity between the receivers.

Clark: Everybody gets along real well with each other, both on the field and off the field. We all have a good time off the field, but it's great when we are on the field.

ITV: Obviously the team has their own set of goals, but what goals are there for just the receivers?

Clark: We have a lot of goals. We want to be the top receiving corp in the nation. We want to try to have atleast three guys with atleast 50 catches. We just want to come out and shock people and prove a lot of people wrong.
