Coach Pat Sullivan, on Saturday’s conference winning, heart stopping, playoff advancing, last second win over Elon:  “Everybody felt when we got the ball with two minutes to go we were going to find a way to win.”

The season came down to one play.  All timeouts exhausted.  Seven seconds remaining on the clock.  And then senior quarterback Andy Summerlin found senior wide receiver Chris Cephus in the end zone.  Samford wins, 33-32, sharing the SoCon championship in football with UTC and Furman.

“Everybody felt when we got the ball with two minutes to go we were going to find a way to win.”

The world is better because Samford people find a way. It isn’t all about winning.  It is about finding a way.  But winning is nice, too.
