Quotables: UCLA coach Jim Mora on punter Jeff Locke

“He’s tremendous. He really is. He set up a safety with the punt (last week against Nebraska). We feel like anytime we get inside the 50 yard line that he’s very capable more than likely to pin our opponent inside the 10. Not only that, but he’s really got an important role here as a mentor to some of those other guys. Everyone on this team looks up to him. He’s one of the best punters I’ve ever been around at any level. It’s fun to watch him work. It’s fun to watch his professionalism in practice. You hope that rubs off on everybody, and I think it does. His team voted him as a team captain. If it wasn’t unanimous it was as close as I’ve seen ever seen it unanimous.”
