Ada, Okla. center and Sooner commitment Chad Roark talks about his week playing against the best in the nation.
JH: I know you were disappointed that you didn't win, but it looked like you had a good game?
CR: "Yeah, I thought I played well. We didn't come out with the victory, but there were a few players where the individual performances were good. We just couldn't put it all together as a team."
JH: What did you find out about yourself this week?
CR: "I discovered that their D-tackles weren't as good as the ones that I played against all week. Gerald McCoy is the best D-tackle in the nation. I will go ahead and say that. I thought I stacked up better against the D-tackles on the East than I did in practice. It wasn't as strong of a test."
JH: I bet coming out of Ada, Okla. you found out you could play with the nation's best?
CR: "I guess so. I played well, I guess."
JH: I was disappointed that you guys didn't run the ball more?
CR: "I know it. Coach Dodge told us we were going to pass the ball a lot because that is what people want to see. I don't know if that is right or not, because we didn't pass the ball very well tonight."
JH: Next week you will be a student at OU. What do you think about all of the sudden being a college student?
CR: "I am ready for it. I am ready to get strong and to start lifting."
Roark proved he belonged in San Antonio
