Purvis, Watson Discuss Lift For Life

RALEIGH, N.C. -- NC State's Asa Watson and Tyler Purvis met with the media following the Wolfpack's Lift For Life event.

Asa Watson

"Bench press was a lot of fun, but I think the hardest was probably the obstacle course."

"It was just a lot of fun. We usually come out here and do our sprints, agility... but to come out here and just have fun and compete against each other. We push each other to make it harder. We just enjoy being out here."

"We've done things similar to the Gator Pull, the sleds, but never anything like the obstacle course."

"I think so. Even if we raise money for a different disease, it's all for a good purpose."

"I could definitely see this being carried on in the future."

Tyler Purvis

"We're always out here competing and having a good time. This really brought the team together as our final workout as a team before we come back in a few days and head into camp."

"It was very strenuous. That little obstacle course over there, I didn't think it would be that bad, but afterwards my legs were dead."

"It was definitely a good time, and a good time to be around the team."

"It's to give an example of how cancer patients fight everyday, and that's what we did."

"It's for a good cause. There are a lot of people out there affected by rare diseases. I think I read a stat where 1 in 10 people are affected with rare diseases and that means there's not an efficient amount of money for funding to make new treatments."

"It's a really important cause, to bring the team together for a good cause and raise money for something that really needs it."

"This is all football-athlete oriented."

"I talked to him for about 20 minutes the other day. He's actually sold his house in Raleigh and is out in San Diego living. He was really appreciative of it and really proud of us for keeping it going and raising money for his disease."
