SEC Football Media Days
Alabama Player Quotes
Friday, July 22, 2011 – Day 3
Running Back Trent Richardson
(On taking a leading role) “It’s going to be a bigger role for me. I have to be ready to play, have to have a lot of character in what I do.”
(On Heisman talk) “I don’t think it’ll be tough to be focused at all. I can’t turn on Sportscenter all the time, keep up with all that talk about my strengths and weaknesses. I can’t let it get to me.”
(On the fans in the lobby) “It’s like that every day for me. It’s Alabama. I take it as an honor. It would be bad if I didn’t have it. I love it.”
(On the running backs in the SEC) “Where do I stand? I don’t know. I know that I want to be one of the best backs, one of the best not just in the conference, although the conference is great and has some great backs, but one of the best backs in the country. I want to have my name remembered, be one of those players you can see on the greatest games, someone who was one of the best on the field.”
(On high preseason expectations) “I love all the expectations. At the end of the day, I want to live up to that. I want to be able to say like ‘Hey, I did that’ or ‘We did that.’ At the same time, it’s hard because you got a big target on your back, but that’s nothing to be scared of.”
(On April’s devastating tornadoes) “You’ve got a situation where people lost everything in Tuscaloosa, lots of people lost hope. We want to bring joy back to the town.”
