Video: Interview with UVA linebacker Henry Coley

uva uclaUVA linebacker Henry Coley talks with reporters after the Cavs’ 28-20 loss to seventh-ranked UCLA in the teams’ 2014 season opener.



On UCLA QB Brett Hundley:

“He had to put the team on his back and try to beat us with his arm and legs. He is a dual threat quarterback that you always have to keep eyes on.”


On Hundley being uncomfortable on the field:

“We were toying with each other and the offensive linemen. They made calls and we would echo them. I walked up and looked at his eyes, we made eye contact a lot, and I could tell he was getting flustered because he never knew where the pressure was coming from. But he stepped up in the pocket and made the passes his team needed to win.”


On the defensive mentality:

“The mentality was that if you don’t score, you don’t win. Of course you want to force turnovers, but we can only control what we do on our side of the ball. We wanted to step up and help our offense with good field position and get turnovers. If we needed to, we wanted to score on our end. If you think about the last play you will mess up the future, especially in one of these games.”
