Oklahoma City five-star defensive tackle Gerald McCoy talks about his two-sack performance at the U.S. Army All-American game and when he'll make his decision.
JH: You were fantastic in this All-American game today. How does it feel to play in this game and play so well?
GM: "It is great to go against the best and still dominate. It gives you a powerful confidence about yourself. It is great to go against the best players in the nation and do well. I had fun, but we didn't come out on top. I still had fun in my last high school football game."
JH: You have talked often about how proud you are to be ranked among the best players, and how you were looking forward to testing what you learned from your coaches at Southeast and from Coach Shipp at camp against other great players to see how you match-up."
GM: "Yeah, it is the greatest feeling to know that you can match-up with these guys. I want to thank God for giving me the ability that he has given me to do what I can do. I couldn't do anything that I can do without God. Yesterday, I had a real bad groin injury and when I woke up this morning I didn't feel anything. That is all God's will to let me do what I have to do."
JH: You went against some of the best offensive linemen in the country, so give us your impression how it went for you?
GM: "I just played my game and it seems things went pretty well for me. We had certain calls and they let me play my style of play. They gave me the freedom to do that, and I guess all the talents that God gave me and all that I have learned from my coaches worked."
JH: You came to this game with six schools on you list, but I understand you now have it down to three.
GM: "Yes, my choices are down to LSU, OU and USC."
JH: Are you still going to take the rest of the month to decide?
GM: "Yes sir."
