HEAD COACH DAN MULLEN
Opening Statement ... “That was a great win for us. Wins are obviously hard to come by in any level of football. I thought our guys came out and played hard today, right from the opening whistle all the way until the end. We talked about needing more effort in the game today and I thought we got that for four quarters.
“Our crowd was great early on. We had great support from them all day.
“I’m proud we got to play a lot of players today. I think 25 freshmen played for us today, so a lot of young guys got reps and the opportunity to be out on the field.”
On Dak Prescott’s play … “I thought Dak came out played well and did a good job in the first half. He made some good reads, managed the offense well, made plays when we needed him to make them and I’m proud of that.”
On Brandon Holloway … “He has a lot of speed and he is an electric player in the open field. We want to make sure we get him in the open field and we were able to do that today. We’ve seen that in practice from him, so we know he can make big plays.
“As a freshman getting his real first opportunity to play in this stadium he came out and did a good job with some runs, catches and the long kick return.”
