Senior closes career in South Bend with a victory

Saturday, November 23, 2013 08:51 pm
SOUTH BEND - Notre Dame senior quarterback Tommy Rees played his final home game at Notre Dame Stadium on Saturday and led the Fighting Irish to a 23-13 victory over BYU.

He spoke with the media following the win on a number of topics:"It's awesome, the young guys did a really great job. Words can't describe how good it feels to win your last game here. That's four years in a row for us, which is awesome, and unless you've experienced it, it's a pretty special feeling.""Completely different, and we are going to enjoy it, just like any other game, for about 24 hours. We have got a tough one next week. We've got to be ready to go but we are definitely going to enjoy this tonight and share this moment with my family and teammates. Doesn't happen every day.""Hey, the weather is what it is. I grew up a couple hours from here so I'm used to that type of weather. Thought we did a great job the whole game communicating what was going on with the weather, but the end of the day, you can't let that effect how you play. You've got to just work through it.""That was a very special moment. We've been through a lot, the entire senior class, not only on the team but everybody here. They could have chanted anyone's name, the whole senior class ‑ but definitely a memory I'll hold very closely for a long time.""You know, first and foremost, being remembered as a winner has always been important to me. Doesn't matter how you win games as long as you get that W. Just gave everything they had to this university and this football program, and I've built a lot of strong relationships not only with people on this team but off this team and those are going to continue for my whole life.""When you're part of the team, you play for one another and you play for the university and you play for the pride that you put in the program and that you have in yourself. You won't find a better group of guys than we have in that locker room and to be able to share this field with them and play with them, that's all the motivation that you need."
