Sinorice Moss Has His Focus on Wake Forest

Senior captain Sinorice Moss leads the team with 426 receiving yards and is second on the team with 24 receptions. He is ready for Saturday's game against Wake Forest (4-6).

Sinorice Moss had four catches for 27 yards against the Hokies on Saturday. He talked about the Hurricanes big win against Virginia Tech.

"The win last Saturday was a great win for our team," Moss said. "We came out and played fast, hard and everyone was pumped. We went out there and did what we were supposed to do and win the football game."

The Canes victory on Saturday was a surprise to many people. Sinorice talked about winning a game that not many thought they would.

"I mean that's what we are supposed to do," Moss said. "We are supposed to go out there and win football games. I know the country is shocked cause they didn't think we could do it. It feels good to let the country know that we are here and we are not going anywhere."

It is obvious that while a lot of people are shocked about the Canes 27-7 win Sinorice was not one of them.

The win over the Hokies gives the team a lot of confidence for the remainder of the season.

"It gives us a lot of momentum," Moss said. "All we have to do is stick to our system and keep practicing hard and doing the things that we have to do to win football games."

The 'Canes lost running back Tyrone Moss for the year on Saturday. Tyrone was having an all-ACC caliber year before tearing his ACL.

"The loss of Tyrone was devastating," Sinorice said. "He is a great back, but we have a lot of backup. Charlie Jones, Derron Thomas, and Andrew Johnson will get their opportunities. We still have some great backs."

Sinorice will be counted on to make plays for the Canes' offense the rest of the year.

"I think I have done what I needed to do to make plays for this football team," Moss said. "I am sure I'll have more opportunities with the games that we have left. I just feel like I have to keep going and make plays for this team."

Sinorice suffered a sprained shoulder against North Carolina, but it should not be a problem the rest of the season.

"The shoulder is fine," Moss said. "It got a little banged up in the North Carolina game that's all."

Look for Sinorice to continue to follow in the footsteps of previous small electric Canes' wide receivers Roscoe Parrish and his brother Santana Moss and finish the season making big plays for the Canes.

The Canes play Wake Forest on Saturday. Moss believes the team will avoid a letdown versus Wake Forest.

"Just go out there and punch them in the mouth," Moss said. "We can't go out there and play these guys like they are nobody. They are a division 1 football team and they are in the ACC. This is the last home game for the seniors on their team. We got to go out there and play hard, play fast, and go out there and whoop them. We can't let up on them."

The Canes are currently 4th in the BCS and it is definitely on their mind.

"Yes it is on our mind," Moss said. "I mean we still are there trying to make the national championship game. It could go either way. We just got to stay focused and take care of this week. Let everything else take care of itself." Hopefully, the Canes will take care of business and chips will fall in place for Sinorice to finish his college career in the Rose Bowl."
