“Many kind words have been spoken and written about me, and I want to say thank you – to everyone.
“I also want to say that any contributions I may have made to the USC football team are nothing compared to what USC did for me. The experiences I had at Carolina, the people I met, the friendships I made, have all molded me into who I am. As I leave, I am a better person; better prepared to face the future and contribute to the fullest.
“To the Carolina Community, my professors, coaches, friends and teammates – Forever to Thee.”
