HIBBETS: It really wasn't a big thing at all. He really came in one day and told me, "We think you can produce on defense." I went in with the state of mind doing whatever was best for the team.
2) How long did it take for you to realize you can produce on defense?
HIBBETTS: Whenever he said I could produce on defense, I said, "Well, great. Let's do something about it and give me a chance to compete."
3)What did you notice with Eastern Illinois' punt formations that you could past?
HIBBETTS: On the first one, I kind of noticed that the time before, the penalty play, I came off the line and he kind of didn't seem to block me much. He just kind of pushed me. So I said I'm gonna hit you and see if I can push you back. It worked.
4) Were there times this summer that you got discouraged?
HIBBETTS: Yeah, there were times when I felt bad. Those are past, and it's time to move forward.
5) Is what you did Saturday enough to convince you that this is where you should be?
HIBBETTS: Yeah, there's little things you don't know about until it happens that tells you this is where you're supposed to be, and I think I'm fortunate to be where I am right now.
