CAMBRIDGE, MA — After celebrating with his coaches and teammates in the Harvard University locker room on Saturday afternoon, fifth-year senior quarterback Collier Winters expressed his thoughts on winning an Ivy League championship.
“The highlight really – it’s all the work and preparation leading up to it,” said Winters. “To really put in a years worth of work, waking up in the morning, walking down in the snow, staying here in the summer, having a job, working out before and after work with all the guys on the team and all the film preparation during the week, [and] you put all that work in to really only get to play 10 Saturday’s for the whole year of work.”
The young gunslinger continued by saying, “To be able to be rewarded for all that work, and to come into week nine and be Ivy League champions [is] just a great feeling.”
Winters finished Saturday’s affair against the University of Pennsylvania by completing 13-of-20 passes for 130 yards and one touchdown, as well as rushed for one score on the ground too.
“It means a lot to win an Ivy League championship, and it really personally means a lot to beat Penn to do that since [they’ve beaten us] the last two years,” said Winters.
