Trent Miles’ quotes after Georgia State’s win over Georgia Southern


Here are Georgia State coach Trent Miles quotes after his team defeated Georgia Southern 34-7 on Saturday in Paulson Stadium. With the victory, the Panthers are bowl eligible for the first time in the program’s six-year history.

“I can’t say enough about our program, our young men. They are the ones out there battling. I’m so proud of them. They could have come in here and wilted under this. This is the worst home loss that this team has ever had at Georgia Southern.”

“Our kids believed that they could win and they just finished off four straight victories in the conference, from 2-6 to 6-6. I can’t say enough about the young men that we have. That’s why you recruit smart, tough, great character guys that love the game.”

“Momentum is everything. When you win games, it makes recruiting a lot better. People know that we are no joke. We are a bowl football team, right in downtown Atlanta. We are a bowl team. We are a team that is very young. Almost all of these guys are back. Have to replace our kicker, about two starters on defense, and two on offense, including our quarterback.

“We are a young football team. This program is growing and growing and growing. We are giving Georgia State and the city of Atlanta something to be happy about.”

“We weren’t ready for this to end. We are having too much fun. Every day we are enjoying it and we love each other. I can’t tell you how happy I am for these young men.”

“When we walked on the field. That’s how we have felt. That’s no disrespect to Georgia Southern. Our kids have felt that way since we beat Ball State at Ball State. I know we lost a game at Louisiana-Lafayette but we believe we should have won that game. Our kids have believed that for quite a while now.

“I’m excited for the administration. I’m excited for the alumni. I’m excited for the student body. I’m excited mostly for the players, their families, the assistant coaches and their families.”
