Louisville Player Quotes

Quarterback Hunter Cantwell


Opening statement...

"We played a really good defense. We knew watching film the first two games of the year and watching them previously. They have a very good defense. They run a good scheme. Two years ago we went up to Kansas State and played them and they played really good against us then so we knew coming in that they were going to play really good defense. We played well, we ran the ball extremely well. I've got to give credit to Greg Tomczyk and Josh Byrom, they were filling in on the left side of the line. They played outstanding - to be able to run the ball, they deserve a compliment."

 

On the validation in the win...

 "We aren't out to make any statements or anything, but this was a good win. We are just going to take it one game at a time and not get too high on ourselves, because the UK game is still in the back of our heads. We played well tonight, we still have a long way to go. I feel like we can be a good football team."

 

On the improvement from the Kentucky game...
"We had great scrimmages and a great camp, we just didn't come out and play like we needed to against UK. That was surprising. We knew we had the talent to play well, we're just going to have to play well on offense. We can't get the big head - working hard, listen to the coaches and keep executing and continue to do our best."

 

Running Back Victor Anderson

On how bad the team needed the win...
"We need a win just like everyone else needs a win. We are just going to keep working hard and marching forward in the season. We are going to keep reaching for our goal."

 

On gaining experience...

"We came in this game the underdogs. We just had to come out and play. We stayed together as a family. We worked hard and we came out and got a big victory."

 

On the success of the run...

"The offensive linemen prepared very well. They worked all week in practice and they came out and played like they knew how. We just wanted to keep our legs fresh and prepare well and come out and get a big victory. I think we came out and got the big victory."

 

On the running back combinations...
"I think it's a good combination as well because Brock comes in and he wears them down and Bilal and I can come in and run around them. Brock keeps pounding it down their throats and the offensive line keeps getting that push and we are just going to keep running the ball."

 

On Connecticut...
"If the running backs keep running, the quarterback keeps throwing, and the receivers keep catching it, then we will be able to get another big win."

 

Cornerback Woodny Turenne


On his two interceptions...

"In being prepared for the game, I go out there with good confidence. By being ready, fundamentally ready I am prepared to play a good game. I have to set a good example. I have to be a good leader. I try to do everything I can and hold myself to a higher standard. I work hard, I care about the team."
