Ricky’s "Super Bowls"

I was going to include this in the mainpage roundup but the quotes are good that I though they needed to be tucked in a stand alone post. So we have been reading a lot about how Ricky Marvray have been lighting up practices last few days. He had another spectacular catch yesterday. His reaction to it was kind of hilarious:

"I caught that ball over Anthony Jefferson and that's something to be happy about, but that's a freshman and I should do that so I'm not too happy about it," Marvray said. "It's a nice play, but I'm trying to do that over an [Aaron] Hester or a Sheldon Price. Not to take away from Anthony Jefferson, he's a good player, but it's something I should do-you feeling me?-he's a new guy."

I imagine Anthony Jefferson is going to come back even harder. Gotta love that kind of competition between O and D (which was also evident in the video of Oklahoma Drills). Going back to Ricky, CRN's comments on his practice attitude was pretty revealing:

"Ricky Marvray comes out to every practice like it's the Super Bowl," Coach Rick Neuheisel  said. "If more guys can get that, we're going to get where we need to be so we just keep pushing that kind of tempo and that kind of mentality."

Marvray mentioned where he got that kind of attitude:

Marvray said his attitude comes partly from his high school coach Matt Logan at Corona Centennial High and partly from his desire to get some playing time this season.

"Every day, I wake up and I say, ‘What am I going to do today that is going to show these coaches that I need to be playing,'" Marvray said. "Whether it's a big catch, a big block or a big run, I feel like I need to be every day giving them a new reason why I should be on the field."

Guess we are going to have to recruit more players coached up by Matt Logan?

Can't wait to see Ricky making those catches at the Rose Bowl this Fall.
