Safety Jamie Thompson
GP: How does it feel named captain for your third time this year?
JT: I'm trying to stay consistent on my play and be a leader out on the field.?
GP: On the Iowa State offense...

GP: On preparing for Colorado...
JT: ?We just need to continue on what we'?ve been doing all season long, by practicing hard and playing Cowboy football.?
Safety Jamar Ransom
GP: On being named captain for the first time in his Cowboy career...
JR: It'?s a great feeling because I know that my teammates and coaches believe that I can be a leader on the field,. ?I think that working hard has proven that anyone can be chosen because the team could of chose any one else that is either playing hard on the defensive side or on the special teams.?
GP: On the coaching staff...
JR: The coaches have done a great job all season long, by showing the schemes the other teams will run, and just preparing us for games,. ?The bye week helped us by getting more time with the coaches and getting prepared for the Big 12 games.?
GP: On getting ready to play at Colorado...
JR: Our conditioning this week is going to be a little bit harder than the past because the air in Colorado is a lot thinner and will be a little harder to breathe at times,. ?I think that it will be another challenge for us and see how we do.?
Fullback Shawn Willis
GP: On how we?ve been so successful with our running game...
SW: It has been great with the way the offensive line has lined up and done their jobs. They have opened up holes for our backs. ?Vernand Morency has been a go-to guy this year and Donovan Woods has showed that he can scramble outside the pocket when he needs to and I feel that with those guys running like they are that we have a chance to run on a lot of teams.?
GP: On the offense only committing one turnover this year...
SW: It'?s a great accomplishment, but the offense has also gotten help from the defense. ?It is awesome how the defense has forced at least three turnovers in each game.?
GP: How do you compare this team to any other Cowboy team you have been on?
SW: This year I think more players have stepped their game up from the past years, and I believe that we all are coming together to compete for the Big 12 Championship.?
