Virginia Player Quotes

Virginia junior cornerback Vic Hall
On his interception returned for a touchdown:
“At the start, a nickeback’s job is to keep the wide receiver from getting too far downfield. As I was standing there I looked back towards the quarterback and the ball was there. I was in the right place at the right time.”

On evading the tackle from Richmond quarterback Eric Ward:
“We always stress to our defense that when you get the ball you turn into an offensive player so I did what I had to do to get away from him.”

On getting the first win of the year:
“It feels great. It gives us a lot of momentum going into the next game. We have to have a great week of preparation to get ready for the next game.”

Virginia senior tailback Cedric Peerman
On getting the first win of the year:

“It feels good. It takes a lot of pressure off of you just being able to get that first win and we’re happy (because) we came out against a good team and we got the first win of the season.

On his and Mikell Simpson’s performances today:
“I felt like the offensive line came out and did well and opened up holes for us. We just happened to run behind those guys.”

Virginia junior wide receiver Kevin Ogletree
On his involvement with the offense:
“We tried to execute a little bit and the plays seemed to be working. Peter (Lalich) and I seemed to be getting into a little bit of a rhythm in the first half and a little bit in the second. We controlled the ball and got first downs to keep matriculating down the field.”

On the offensive performance in the first half:
“We had almost fifty plays in the first half. We were on the field for a long time but we didn’t really convert every time we wanted to. We still had some good plays and we were able to get some better plays and get first downs. We just have to work on finishing and scoring down in the red zone.”
