David A. Willauer-Contributing Writer-12-28-19-Former San Marcos Knights alum Terrell Burgess will play his last college football game for the Utah Running Utes when they take on the Texas Longhorns on 12-31-19 in the Valero Alamo Bowl in San Antonio, Texas.
The Running Ute finished third on the team with 75 tackles this season and was named All Pac 12.
Q. Terrell, from a leadership standpoint could you talk about getting a guy like Jason Shelley acclimated on the fly in only three or four weeks?
TERRELL BURGESS: I think it’s just — in this program we teach a lot, next man up, and he was asked to move to safety, give him a better possibility to get on the field, and I think he’s acclimating very well. It’s hard to teach somebody any position, but if they’re willing to try and do it, that’s what makes it easier. It’s been going well. I’m excited to see him get on the field at some point and see what he can do.
Q. Terrell, what specifically have you learned from the Oregon game? It’s been almost a month now?
TERRELL BURGESS: I mean, we try not to talk about games. We’re on to Texas now. But I think we just learned that we’ve got to make tackles. We’ve got to win — it sucks to lose, but it happens. Anybody can lose on any given day. They had a great scheme. They played a great game. But we’re on to Texas now.
