Warrior on emotional Pruitt: 'That makes us want to play even hard for him'

KNOXVILLE — Junior defensive back Nigel Warrior met with media during Tennessee’s bye week.

The Vols are coming off a performance that showed improvements defensively as UT played Georgia to a 24-12 game with ten minutes remaining.

“I would say that I feel like we played and we fought that game and we got better,” Warrior said of having extra emotion within the team.

Following the loss at Georgia, Jeremy Pruitt became emotional while talking about his players getting better.

“I feel like that’s why he got a little bit emotional, because he can see us getting better and with that being said, that makes us want to play even hard for him,” Warrior said of Pruitt.

The Vols are 2-3 on the season and Warrior understands that the team needs to take the next step in continuing to get better.

“It just shows us that we need to become one, get tighter and start to trust each other on and off the field,” he said. “Coaches, players, just trust each other and do our job and execute.

“I feel like we’re getting better. We’re starting to trust each other, we’re starting to actually become one, like I Just said, we’re starting to become one and we’re starting to trust each other in every play, every game, we’re starting to just get a feel for each other.”
