Quotebook: Jordan Sterns Nearly In Tears Before Game

first_imgWe have already taken a look at most of this week’s quotes in our various articles on the game. But here is anything you might have missed.Mike Yurcich on the bomb to Washington“That long ball, it was great protection and a tremendous throw by the quarterback. It was all about execution, and in order to throw James Washington a ball 50 yards downfield, you gotta have great protection. That’s what that was on that particular play, but James is a dependable and a tremendous, explosive receiver.” [O’Colly]James Washington on having his family there“That could be a little confidence boost, just having my mom and dad and family up in there. It just kinda gives me a little extra adrenaline. It was a lot of fun. I can’t wait to go talk to ‘em after the game, just to hear what they thought and just celebrate the night.” [O’Colly]Mike Gundy on money“As always, if you come to a game in Stillwater during conference play, you’re probably going to get your money’s worth. I’ve said that each week. I was really proud of our team today in all three phases. We played a very similar game to what we played against West Virginia.”Gundy on being back at it“It was a good college football game, and a great win for us. I think we stayed healthy, so that’s exciting. I want the team to be able to enjoy it tonight, but then we have to be able to get back to work tomorrow. Whether you have really good wins like this or if you lose, you’ve got to go back to work Sunday. There just isn’t enough time to lose our focus for one day. I’m happy for the guys and ready to go back to work.”Glenn Spencer on going at it with Tech“Well, you knew the game was going to be 100 plays. There were probably about 110 that we played. You knew from the start it was going to be that way. Our guys score fast and it’s great. Everyone is celebrating, but then you have to grab a coke and get back on the field.”A coke?Kirk Tucker on the end of the game“It was really a lot of excitement going on in my mind. I love games like that, when it’s just so close and both teams are competing. They have a great quarterback and a great offense. And we do as well. Our defense stepped up and their defense stepped up in big moments. So it was just exciting to see.”Jordan Setrns On his final game at BPS“Man, I never thought it’d come to an end honestly. It came quick and it was just fun. I made sure I soaked it all in and it was a very memorable moment. I was almost in tears. I was in tears at the beginning of the game and almost broke down. But I still have two games left, so I have to keep it together.”Zac Veatch on his final game at BPS“It was a blast. To get to be a captain with Mike Wilson on the last home game, my first roommate for my first two years here, that was a blast. The crowd was awesome and the game was intense and fun. You couldn’t ask for a better way to go out.”Kliff on the extra point“I just told him, ‘I’m proud of the way that he has kicked the last two years.’ He’s hit a bunch of big-time kicks for us and he’ll do it again. He just has to move on to the next one and he’ll have an opportunity the next two games to help us win.”Patrick Mahomes on his squad“It definitely hurts. We had a lot of chances to win. They found a way to win. We didn’t. It is kind of like the whole season. But it hurts. We are going to go out there and fight. We have two games to get bowl eligible.” While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.
