Lafayette - Holy Cross Postgame Quotes

Go Leopards!

Oct. 21, 2000

Recap |  Box Score

HOLY CROSS: Head Coach Dan Allen, Quarterback Errieck Stewart, Wide Receiver David Thompson.

Allen's thoughts on the Crusader loss: "We had good opportunities throughout the game and just couldn't capitalize on them. Give credit to Lafayette. They did what they had to do today to get the win."

Allen on the scoreless first half: "I felt at halftime that we were in pretty good shape. We just had to go out in the third and put points on the board."

Allen on Holy Cross' second-straight loss (following its loss to Dartmouth last week): "Two weeks in a row we made mistakes and it hurt us. Losing these last two games... it definitely hurts."

Stewart on the Crusaders' passing game: "It's obviously good to get a lot of yards but we were taken out of our rhythm. Gaining yards doesn't mean anything if you don't win."

David Thompson on Andrew May's 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown: "That was obviously a big turn of momentum but throughout the game there were a couple of bust plays, especially on my part, that were key to us not putting the points up."

LAFAYETTE: Head Coach Frank Tavani, Defensive Tackle Mike Levy, Split End Phil Yarberough, Tailback Scott Warden, Flanker Andrew May.

Tavani on team's performance: "The effort they put forth today was definitely a team effort. They played Lafayette Football like they know they can. They gave it all they had, and I couldn't have asked for more."

Tavani on defensive effort: "I can't say enough about our defense. They played against a productive Holy Cross offense. It was the best defensive effort I've seen in my 14 years of coaching here."



Tavani on remaining games: "We have the ability to play with anyone if we can stay consistent. From the beginning we have believed we can, and we will continue with that attitude."

Tavani on effort of the seniors: "These seniors have endured a lot in the past four years, including a changing of the guards. They've been incredible in establishing this new program and I will forever remember this group for that."

Levy on defensive effort: "We've been giving up a lot of points in the past couple of weeks. We knew coming home after being on the road that we'd have to play with pride and I thought we executed that very well."

May on his record setting 97-yard kickoff return: "Everyone had their man and I was able to see a lot of holes all around the field. I picked one on the left middle of the field, and thanks to the blockers was able to beat everyone else to the outside. I heard the crowd and the adrenaline kicked in for the final 20 yards."

Yarberough on injury suffered in practice on Tuesday: "Thanks to the training staff, especially Matt Bayly, I was able to have a bunch of rehab treatments every day and it kept getting better all week. I have full range of motion, so other than the pain involved, it wasn't really a factor."

Warden on rushing attempts: "In the first half I kept getting tripped up, but in the second half I was determined. I lowered my head and kept hitting holes around the field as fast as I could."

Warden on effort of offensive line: "Our offensive line took control in the second half. They did what they had to do and we were able to be more successful getting up the field."
