Kansas State Offensive Player Quotes

Freshman Quarterback Josh  Freeman

On his touchdown run...

“Adrenaline took over and I just took off. It was a designed pass, and the line did a great job of opening up the middle of the field for me. The pressure came, the line spread it out, and I just ran.”

 

On the offense in the final four minutes...

“Our philosophy is to play well throughout the game, and when you have to perform, do it. Everyone was ready for it. The line fought hard during the entire game and the pass protection was great during that drive. When they do that, you just can’t let them down.”

 

On his performance during the game...

“I felt like I did a pretty good job. I knew that all I could do was manage the game, be ball-secure, and ultimately put my team in a situation that we could win. I thought I did that. The coaching staff prepared me the entire week giving me plenty of reps, and that made me comfortable throughout the game.”

 

Freshman Running Back Leon Patton

On his big performance...

“I give credit to the offensive line today. I couldn’t do it by myself. There were big blocks made everywhere. They created the holes and I just hit them.

 

On his kickoff return for a touchdown...

“I remember seeing a hole and coming through it. Somebody grabbed onto my foot, and our team needed to score so I tried my best to get free and get into the end zone.”

 

Freshman Tackle Nick Stringer

On Josh Freeman’s touchdown to put Kansas State ahead...

“It was an amazing play. We had a good pocket for him I don’t know if anyone wasn’t open but he started scrambling and I knew he was big and athletic and he was going to make it into the end zone.”
