"During the summer coach [Jason] Veltkamp would pick out guys he thought deserved to hit [the rock]. It's a symbolic deal – when we finally break it all the way through and get where we want to be as a team it won't be the final blow that did it, it will be all the blows before that got us there."
"This is what I've been waiting for me – everyone's been telling me it gets hot down here."
"Logan unfortunately hurt his knee yesterday – I know that news is out there. We won't have him for the season – Ryan Cheek one of his kind of brother in arms came over right after the injury and pretty neat deal – asked if he could move from linebacker to fullback and take his spot. That said a lot about a senior on our football team wanting to do something for the rest of the guys."
"It's the other [knee]. He had a right knee ACL in high school and hurt it again here. It was clean; the docs feel real good about the recovery, just have to go through the normal procedure now."
"He was in a drill and he got leg-whipped. It wasn't a planting thing, he was just at the end of a drill and another guy got thrown from the back-side and he just didn't see it coming."
"We're down to two guys – Pete and Brandon are battling and tomorrow is going to be a big day for those two guys with our first scrimmage."
"Their experience, the way they kind of have a presence on the field with our offense. Both of them just understand the game better."
"[Tyler Purvis] is just a football player. He catches the ball well, he's versatile. We can get him in space and do some things – he's a good guy on the move as far as our H-back system."
"Maurice [Morgan] has the ability to be a good player – but he's not a good player right now. He's got a long way to go. He can be – he's a big athletic guy who works hard and does what you say. He just has a lot of learning to do."
