Kansas State Defensive Player Quotes

Junior Defensive Back Devin Anderson
On his interception return for a touchdown...
“We were really in a zone defense but we’ve been working on our techniques to show man in the slot. I faked like I was in man and sometimes when you play the defense to the right technique, things will hit you right in the face and that’s what happened.”

On the defense late in the game...
“Coach Morris says that great defense do one of two things they either get the ball back or get the ball back and score. That’s one thing we’re always trying to do, be great not good. We were just trying to finish the game out strong.”

Sophomore Defensive End Ian Campbell

On the overall effort of the defense...

“We did a good job of pressuring the quarterback not just up front, but the front seven. We all took a bite out of (Bret) Meyer. It was nice to get back there and see everybody as a team, get to the quarterback.”

 

On going down early and what got the team back in the game...

“I was talking to Zach (Diles) on the sideline during the game and I never really felt uncomfortable and the way the offense was moving the ball gave me a lot of ease. As a defense we knew we were going to get our stuff together.”

 

On Brandon Archer’s recovery of the muffed punt...

“With Brandon (Archer) on the field you can always have that kind of aspect. He’s a smart player and he’s able to bring that to the game whenever. He’s a fun guy and he makes great plays for us.”

 

Senior Defensive Tackle Blake Seiler
On going to Colorado...
“It’s going to be a big game for us. Last time we were there they beat us late. It’s a big game for the seniors because we remember that. Obviously we need another win to get to a bowl, so it’s a big game all around.”

 

On what Ian Campbell brings to the team...

“He’s a great player and a great guy. He’s a speed rusher so that helps a lot. He plays hard every play and he’s just so fast it’s hard for other guys to block him. Last year, he was playing defensive end with me and I brought him along. This year he’s coming into his own.”
