The Syracuse running back is coming off a huge game against Louisville.
Prince-Tyson Gulley piled up 98 yards on the ground and two touchdowns last week in SU’s dominating win over the Cardinals. Naturally, The Fizz Spotlight shines on PTG this week.
The junior has nearly 500 rushing yards and five TD’s this season. The Fizz talked with the Ohio native about the Louisville victory, how to become bowl eligible against Missouri, and the competitiveness of the SU RB’s on and off the field.
On Not Getting Too High After the Victory v. Louisville:
“[Coach Marrone] really wants us to focus more at the task at hand. We know we just came off of a big win, and we kind of want to ride that momentum, but still know what we have to prepare. This is a new team, just focus more on the opponent now, and don’t forget how you got to the last win.”
On Facing An SEC Team:
“Yes, there’s a lot of motivation. With [Missouri] being an SEC team, they already think they’re over us, because of the Big East, and how great the SEC conference is. So, it’s motivation because we want to go show people that we play football and put our pads just like they do. We’re ready to compete when the time is right.”
On SU’s “Four-Headed Monster” in the Backfield
“We’re brothers, we keep a competition. We do everything together, we always compete. I’m the best Madden ’13 player in the room. We compete in everything we do, and we make it a fun environment because at the end of the day we’re still brothers.”
