WHAT THEY'RE SAYING: "Nick is the first guy every coach talks about before we play each week. The big thing is it is so rare to have to defend the whole field against a kid that can make every throw on the field. He can throw the 15-yard out. He can throw the 60-yard bomb down the middle of the field. He can dump the ball off and he can do it all with the proper velocity the college coaches want to see out of big quarterback with a strong arm."

RICHARDS ON HIS GAME: "We all wanted to go out on a good note. It was the last game for everybody. Everyone wanted to go out and perform. I was real confident everyone I threw the ball to was going to make a play. I was confident we were going to do whatever was necessary to get the win."
