Said head coach Rusty Wright:”He’s beat up. Banged up right now, but you couldn’t tell it. You couldn’t tell it. He is. He is special.”
Said Curtis:”He’s all about business you know. He is way different. I asked him. I said is your family going to come to the game. He said I don’t really like my family to come to the game. I was like why? He was like…you know this is kind of like my job, so I don’t want them around here. (Chuckles) I just started laughing. I was like okay. Whatever makes you go you know.”
