Pop quiz with Texas A&M security Demani Richardson | Soccer
Texas A&M senior safety Demani Richardson returned for his fourth season at Aggieland after starting all 12 games last season and finishing third on the team in tackles with 65. He is one of the team’s leaders on the pitch, but away from the pitch, Richardson says he’s serious about games and fashion. He sat down with Eagle Sportswriter Travis L. Brown will take Game Day’s pop quiz this week ahead of the Aggies’ Week 2 game with Appalachia State:
Q: What have you thought of this squad so far and how are you progressing in Week 2?
A: We did a good job. I feel like fall camp went really well. I feel like we have found our leaders. I feel like we’ve done a good job trying to hold the guys accountable, making sure everyone keeps doing things on and off the pitch.
Q: What made you come back for your senior year? A: Part of the reason was that I wanted to prove what I had to do. I had more games to play, and part of the reason is that I want to win. I know I have the coaches. I have the players. I have the [things] just here to win. I just wanted to prove that I could win and prove that I could do more and be a better player.
