Do you have a specific memory from the trip to Frisco that will stick out to you the rest of your life?
If not the game, the couple of days leading up to the game. Chilling in the hotel with the guys. That’s the last time I’ll hang out with Cordell for a little while. That was a big memory for me.
If you look back at the whole season, was there a single play that comes to mind that’s representative of the 2022 NDSU championship football team?
I don’t know if there’d be a single play. But any time the defense gets a pick or the offense has 10 guys up there driving the ball carrier forward the sideline is going crazy.
Is there an unsung hero from the squad that you’d like to highlight?
Our quality control guys like Lee (Pronschinske) and Coach (Connor) Sanger. Without those guys, I don’t know how the coaches would get stuff done. That’s a big thing. I’d also like to thank the scout guys. We appreciate the heck out of them.
What did it mean to you for your offensive line to have such a dominant season this year?
It means a lot, we kind of pride ourselves on trying to take control of the game, taking three and four yards carries and turning them into six, seven-yard carries.
Why come back next year?
I don’t want to look back in 10 years and be like, ‘man, I could have played another year.’ So, I’m just going to stay and give it my all for another year and see what happens after that.
What was the experience like after the clock hit zero?
It was pretty sweet. We were up by a little bit so we kind of knew before the clock said zero, but just running out and seeing the fans rush the field and going out and hugging all your buddies and then making your way to the stage was so unreal. d find those edges that I can use.
