Everett Golson: completed 18-of-22 passes for 302 yards and four
touchdowns (24, 17, 6, and 44 yards). He also rushed once for a 22-yard
"We had a lot of things we wanted to achieve tonight; don't get complacent," Golson told the Sun News. "Sometimes, from the past, we knew if we worked hard, we were going to score (a lot).
"In order to be a great team, we have to cut out on the small penalties. That's what it was. Unfortunately, we had a lot of touchdowns called back."

Keith Marshall: rushed for 223 yards and three touchdowns on 23
"He has the whole package," Clarence Inscore told the News & Observer of Marshall. "He has great moves, and he sees things really well. He just has that extra gear that a lot of kids don't have."

"I felt real pumped up to get on the field," Morris told the Salisbury Post. "I know every time I come out here it could be my last moment. You never know what's gonna happen. So I just try to make the most of it and go as hard as I can."
"I get up every morning and I'm thankful [Morris is] on our side and we don't have to chase him around," Salisbury coach Joe Pinyan told the Salisbury Post. "I'd hate to think about having to run that young'un down."

Christian Russell: rushed for 133 yards on 24 carries, but only
13 of those yards came in the second half.
"We knew [Russell] was going to be a tough guy to bring down," opposing defensive end Eric MacLain told the Fayetteville Observer. "In the first half we didn't wrap up [and ] we really didn't perform to our ability. In the second half, we figured out what they were doing." -- Fayetteville Observer
Marquise Williams: threw for 341
yards and 7 touchdowns on 18-of-28 passing.
"We wanted to keep playing hard, and let people know what we can do" Williams told the Charlotte Observer. "We're a team with a lot of weapons and we've been working hard to get better. I'll have a lot of people I can throw the bal to this season."
