Chuck Priore Quotes ... 

  • "When you put together a plan, you're excited when it comes together.  We possessed the ball, we were efficient in the passing game and didn't give up the big play.  I told the team that they needed to hang their hat on something other than last year.  Today, this team created its own identity."

LT Scott Hernandez Quotes ...

  • "We wanted to make sure we didn't allow Army to get into the gaps.  We were able to do that today.  When Miguel makes his runs and scores, I feel like the offensive line scores."

RB Miguel Maysonet Quotes ...
