"I have a new bald spot in the back of my head," Spaziani said. "It was an inauspicious start. Those things are there. They need to be corrected. We are not going to be able to go the rest of the season, playing the schedule that we play, doing that. [After the first quarter] we tried to let our players know it’s a football game. It’s 60 minutes and you’ve got to keep playing."

"We are going into a different stratosphere now," BC coach Frank Spaziani said. "We’ve got two games under our belt and we are going on the road for a game we need to play well in. We took some steps forward in areas but to be perfectly frank, and I told the team, we have 10 tough games coming up and we have to get a lot better."

"It came from my grandfather, actually," Evans explained. "He gave it to me when I was around seven years old because I have a lot of sneakers. From a kid, I just love fashion, like sneakers, old stuff like vintage wear, hats, anything that you can put on and wear. He just gave me that nickname and said, ‘I’m a unique kid.’ I just stuck with it since."

"We haven’t had the real dynamic returner in all the years that I’ve been here," said coach Frank Spaziani. "So we just try to be fundamentally sound and catch the ball and get upfield. They outkicked their coverage and we got some blocks, and he did what he was supposed to do."

When asked what he said to his team between the first quarter and the second quarter when the Eagles turned the deficit into a 17-3 which doubled again by the end of the third quarter, Spaziani said, "Not anything you can print. It was a little unnerving (the start). But I told them it was more than one quarter."
