Interview Quote from KATU Sports

“I just want to say to all the people back home and all my family that I’m doing this for them. I wish I could be home to help everyone but I can’t. I will be thinking of you all on Sept. 5 when we play against Washington State. I’m going to play for you all so just watch,” the 22-year-old player said.
