Brian Price on being named to the Outland Trophy watch list:
“This is a team sport. There are 10 guys lining up next to me on that field who are working hard, and I’ve got to give credit where credit is due. I’m just the won getting the awards. And I didn’t even get nothing yet. My name is on a list. I’ll use it as motivation to just work harder.”
On the importance of winning awards:
“Coach was talking before camp that we’ve got to get to more black tie events. The award shows, the bowl games, we’ve got to get back to them. We have to get UCLA back on the map.
On competing for national awards:
“That’s everybody’s motivation to get back out here. Every single person out here wants to win an award, and everyone out here wants to win games. UCLA is not represented by 4-8; 4-8 isn’t good enough. That’s not UCLA. You look back and go into the Hall of Fame room, and it’s just incredible, what everyone has done. We have to live up to that standard.”
