"When I was a sophomore, I was fortunate enough to play in the national championship game up in [Foxborough, Mass.]," he said. "The game started, I blinked my eyes a couple times, and the game was over. This time, I'm going to really enjoy the time that I'm out there. These opportunities don't happen so often. So I'm definitely going to enjoy it and hopefully, good things will happen for the Sea Gulls."
