VIDEO: Washington Safety Brian Clay Post-Game - Apple Cup

Dawgman.com spoke with Washington Safety Brian Clay after the Huskies demolished No. 20 WSU in the 108th Apple Cup, played Friday at Husky Stadium. The senior had eight tackles and a pass breakup in his final regular-season game as a Husky

On the progression of the secondary over the past two seasons “We’ve matured and grown a lot as a secondary. Last year we were really young and this year it’s possibly one of the strengths on our defense. We took a lot of pride in that last season. Even though we were young we were going to lock everything down back there. We were going to control our 20 square feet. That’s what we did.”

 

On the WSU offense “Yeah, they have a really good offense; they have a really good system. But we have a really great defense and I was always told defense wins championships and offense wins MVPs.”

 

On what it feels like to have his last game in Husky stadium ending like this “I wouldn’t want to go out any other way. This is the best thing that could happen. We got seven turnovers I believe. And it was a great defensive performance by everybody. We were clicking on all cylinders today.”

 

On the mindset all week for the defensive backs “Just watching a lot of film, knowing their tendencies, and techniques. Big plays happen. That’s what happened for us today.”

 

On Sidney Jones’ development “Sidney (Jones) is a tremendous player. He keeps growing everyday and everyday in practice he takes another step and keeps building. It’s no surprise what happened today. It finally came out. That’s what we see in practice all the time.”
