…I wanted to say thanks to the coaching staff to give me a chance to be out here…

C.J. Hooker

First of all I want to say thanks to God… I want to thank the coaching staff for giving me the opportunity to be on the team. I love my teammates. Last of all, I want to thank the fans. You are a big part of our success…

Jackie Manuel

I'd like to thank God for this opportunity. I'd like to thank my parents… I would like to thank the coaching staff for allowing me to find myself. You guys made me a better player… I'd like to thank my teammates who stuck it out when times were hard. I love you all. Last, but not least, I'd like to thank the fans. You are the best in the country. I love every one of you. I really appreciate everything you've done. Thank you.

Melvin Scott

First of all, I want to thank God and my Mom--or I wouldn't be here obviously. Coaching staff, I know at times I'm so crazy, but I thank you all for putting up with me anyway. My teammates, I love you all. Fans, I love ya'll too. And that's it.

Jawad Williams

First of all, I want to thank my family, my girlfriend, all my friends, all my teammates--especially Jackie and Melvin; we've been through a lot... the coaching staff, Coach Williams, Coach Robinson, Coach C.B., Coach Holladay, Coach [Sah]ration… Hopefully, we can keep this going. It was nice to cut down the nets tonight, but I want to cut down the national championship nets.

Thanks to all the fans, it's been a lot of fun. You all supported us when times were tough. A lot of you watched us grow. We appreciate all the support.
