Simpson Press Conference

October 8th, 2012 - By Steve James

Head coach of the UT Martin football team Jason Simpson, held a press conference yesterday to discuss Saturday’s win over Eastern Illinois, and their upcoming game against Murray State.


Simpson said Saturday’s win was very much a team effort because they had to overcome giving up over 600 yards of offense against Eastern Illinois.


Coach Simpson also discussed the status of Junior defensive back Fred Flenorl, who had to have vertebrae surgery following a neck injury in Saturday’s game. Simpson said Flenorl is doing fine, and the team’s thoughts and prayers are with him.


Simpson said the Skyhawk defense will have to step up once again this weekend for the game against Murray State. Racer quarterback Casey Brockman is averaging over 350 yards passing yards per game and has completed 70 percent of his passes.


The Skyhawks kick off at Murray State at three o’clock on Saturday with airtime starting at 2:30 on Mix 101.3
