VIDEO: Washington Running Back Myles Gaskin Post-Game - Apple Cup

Dawgman.com spoke post-game with Washington running back Myles Gaskin, who ran 32 times for 138 yards and two touchdowns as the Huskies blew out No. 20 Washington State in the 108th Apple Cup, played Friday at Husky Stadium.

On the win and being the first true freshman to rush for 1000 yards in a season for Washington “It was great. Starts with the o-line obviously, but it’s just a great feeling to be able to say that I did that. Nothing but love to God, my family, my o-line, and my teammates. There’s nothing but support from those guys.”

 

On the offensive line opening holes to run through in the second half “They do it every week honestly. It’s just crazy to see how they do that every single week, just play all the way out, nothing held back. After you see your fellow guys do that, you just want to do that for them too. That’s what we try to go out there and do.”

 

On if he felt that there was more room to run in the second half “Absolutely. WE started stretching out the field; Jaydon (Mickens) started going down the field. We came back out in the second half and holes started opening up for me. The first half it wasn’t too open but we put it together.”

 

On if he started asking for the ball after Jake Browning’s interception “No. I don’t say any of that. I just listen to the coaches. They call the right plays and we just try our best to execute.”

 

On what a win like this means “I don’t know. It’s a great win. I’m still new to this. It hasn’t really set in. It’s just a great feeling. Seeing everyone up here with smiles, seeing my parents up in the stands, people I know, it’s just a great feeling really.”

 

On what the attitude was coming into the game “Go out and win. That’s the attitude every weekend but yeah; go win.”

 

On how it feels to join the ranks of Bishop Sankey and Chris Polk “That’s crazy for me to hear honestly because those are guys I saw on TV when I was little just playing backyard football. Chris Polk and those guys, it’s nothing but a blessing. I thank God every day.”
