Three seniors reflect on final home game
A special senior class played its last home game at Floyd Stadium on Saturday and celebrated in style with a 38-14 win over Arkansas State.
The class started its time at Middle Tennessee with the program fallen on hard times. It will leave having sent the Blue Raiders to a bowl game for the second time.
Three members of the senior class spoke with GoMiddle.com about their emotions following their last game at Floyd Stadium.
LB Danny Carmichael - "Before the game everybody knew about it, but it was really after the game walking off the field that it really hit me. It's hard to explain the feeling you have, knowing it's your last game playing at home. It's sad, but we've had a great year so far and I couldn't be any happier. I just want to be known as the best team to ever come through here."
DE Chris McCoy - "I didn't really get into all of that today. I'll wait until after the bowl game to get into all of that. Today I just focused on the game and tried to get a win and we did."
WR Patrick Honeycutt- "I think there was a lot more emotion for all of us as seniors. We have all been so close and to see it come to an end is pretty sad. It's a bittersweet moment that it's our last game here, but it was a really good win and a good way to go out. I think (Coach Stockstill) did a good job because he didn't put too much emphasis into it being senior day or being our last game. We just kind of took it as another game, but when the game was over you start to realize that this was my last game here. I kind of get chills just thinking about it. This is already maybe the best season MT has ever had. To be a part of it has been great and to build this foundation that Coach Stock wants this program to stand for, to be a part of it and to be the first ones to put that into this program is really special and we can always look back and say that we were the first ones."
