Middle Tennessee Quotes – Dec. 21, 2015

Middle Tennessee held its first practice in Nassau Monday morning at Roscow A. L. Davies Soccer Field near Robinson Stadium.


“I thought we came out with a lot of energy today. I was excited just to get down here and get out in this heat on the field. We’ve actually been fortunate enough to have good weather back home. Real encouraged by the work we put in today. Now we just have to put one good one in tomorrow and start winding down and get ready to play.

“We took a lot of reps with the young guys (before we left). They probably took, I’d say, 50 live reps every day for about seven straight days. It was good for those guys to get out and move around in our system. They’ve been scout team guys all year and we’re counting on a lot of those guys to play next year.”

“Once you get on here, football’s football. But it’s pretty neat to be here and the kids deserve it but we’re here for a purpose.”


“I’ve been on a cruise to the Bahamas before. I’ve been by Atlantis on a boat but hadn’t stayed there til now. Everybody was jacked up and excited to get down here. I think when you get to a place like this with the weather and the atmosphere it kind of gets you in good spirits.”

On being in the Bahamas

“I just kind of want to see what it has to offer. Enjoy the beach, the hotel, this place is new to me. Not sure if I’m going to do the dolphin thing but I know a lot of the guys are.”


“It was awesome. This is my first time in the Bahamas. Seeing the all the sights and the different cultures was pretty cool. I’ve been to Mexico on a cruise before but this is a whole other experience. Everybody’s excited most of the guys probably won’t go to the Bahamas again so it’s a once in a lifetime experience. We’re going to enjoy it.”

“I want to go swimming a little bit and I definitely want to do the dolphin thing today. Just see everything and enjoy it.”
