  • “- Matt Prater: [about his father] All he does is boss me around. He doesn't even try to understand me.
    - Grant Taylor: Matt, you can't judge your father by his actions and then judge yourself by your intentions. It doesn't work that way. You're not responsible for him. You're responsible for you.”

  • “- David Childers: Coach, the farthest I've ever kicked is a 39-yarder. There is no way I can kick a 51-yard field goal.

    - David Childers: I know, coach.”
