How did you feel about your showing?
It looked pretty good, the numbers, but I think it’s definitely good to get 20 faceoffs wins. But after those faceoff wins, it’s good to take care of the ball. Like I said earlier, you’ve got to limit the turnovers after you get the faceoff win. But if we can do that, 20 faceoff wins is definitely crucial in a tight game like that.
How do you feel about being the first Towson player to win 20 faceoffs in a game since 2005 when Matt Eckerl did it?
I think, I mean, as long as I’m helping the team win, yeah, I think that’s pretty cool to just learn that. As long as I can keep those numbers up and maybe win more than that, that would be great.
Did you know at any point that you were getting up to that number?
No, I had no idea. I was just trying to take one at a time and win as many as possible to give my team, my offense the ball.
Do numbers like that, records, do they mean anything to you?
I think more, wins mean more to me. But I don’t mind, you know, winning 20 or more faceoffs in a game. Obviously, that’s important. That makes the team better, winning more faceoffs than usual.
Considering how well you played last year, there seems to be a lot of pressure on you to repeat that performance again this year in order for this team to succeed. Is that a lot of pressure you have to deal with?
Personally, I do think about that a lot. I think it is pressure, but I think it’s good pressure for me to just keep me on my toes and know that my other faceoff guys are working me every day. I just think that’s good pressure for me to keep winning faceoffs for our team.
