Q&A with Denzel Perryman

Posted Sep 19, 2013

Read on to see what junior linebacker Denzel Perryman is saying about the Florida game, how the defense can still improve, and more.

On knowing Florida’s players:
I only knew one person on the Florida team and it was Quinton Dunbar. But I’ve heard of some of those guys before.

We just have to work. I don’t know just yet. We treat it like a normal game, a normal opponent, like Florida or any other team. We just have to play our game.

On what he’s telling younger players:
We tell the young guys, no matter who we play, we have to treat it like another game. A lot of guys are focused and doing their jobs. We just have to get it done and not talk about it.

On how the defense can improve:
Just our fundamentals,, our pass drops, be more gap sound, and work on our techniques.

On support from around campus:
A lot of kids will tell us congratulations, we brought it home, and stuff like that. It’s nice.

On Saturday’s crowd:
It’s a Saturday night game so I hope they come. It was nice, a solid crowd we had against Florida. We might go all orange again, maybe orange and white, I’m not sure.

On being ranked now:
A lot of guys are excited about it but we just have to keep doing what we’re doing.
