Locker Room Report: Wolfpack Players

RALEIGH, NC -- Wolfpack players met with the media following NC State's win over Maryland.

Marcus Stone (1:15)

"We're definitely worthy of a bowl."

"I just focused more on the game itself. I just went out there and played hard."

"I don't feel so much changed. The offense as a whole just started clicking. We started to feel comfortable and just went out there and had fun."

Toney Baker (1:34)

"I was focused on holding onto the ball and moving forward."

"That was bigtime. Momentum on our sideline was fantastic. You could look at their sideline and it was nothing like our sideline."

"We're pretty good friends, believe it or not, we're good friends. It's going to be there. Over the next few years, me and Andre, it's going to be a great one-two punch. We're in the film room together. We're going to get it done."

"That's huge. That's a lot of momentum going into the offseason. Just to be eligible after all we've been through after everybody wrote us off. Just to keep fighting... it's fantastic."

Mario Williams (1:37)

"It's a great feeling... especially to do it in three years. I just got to keep my engine running and continue with the success."

"I just came off the ball, ran right back the tackle, hit him and tried to rip through with my left arm. He lost the ball and it was a great turnaround."

"It was his day. He stepped up and won the game for us. I know that he is feeling great right now."

"This is the most I've ever been prepared against an opponent. I knew just about everything they were doing... especially if it was a pass. I told them what was going on, and we just had to get off the ball."

Manny Lawson (1:37)

"Losses in the future don't show anything. What we did in the end, we showed that we don't give up. You can't count people out for what they do at the beginning. A race is won at the end, not the beginning."

"We ended this with an ACC win in Carter-Finley Stadium to make us bowl eligible. I'm ecstatic right now."

"He had a wonderful game. He was everywhere. We were in there watching film and he'd be calling out the plays before the ball was even snapped. He showed out. He showed his talent... he stepped up to the plate."

Stephen Tulloch (2:38)

"Maryland has become a rivalry."

"He's a special player. He's been a great player all year. He hasn't had the interceptions to prove it, but he's a heckuva player. I can't wait to see him on Sundays."

Marcus Hudson (2:57)

"It was almost like a basketball move. I boxed him out. I caught it... I cupped it. I felt him go around my waist and come off. By the time I turned around, it was just the endzone."

"We're fighters... we're winners. Within our heart we know we can compete with the best. We came back from a 2-4 start and we just fought. We just fought all year long."

"Coach Amato mentioned all week that it's a sixty minute game. That was all coach Amato was preaching all week long."
