Quotes (6)

  • Reggie: I'm just a normal guy in general. I know a lot of people might see me as a celebrity, but I'm just a normal guy who likes to do normal things. Hang out with his friends... go shopping... play video games.

  • Reggie: I play on pure instincts. I remember being surrounded by three guys getting ready to tackle me, and I saw one of my teammates off to the right by himself, and I tried to pitch the ball to him. That's the type of player I am. I play fearless and I'm willing to score at all costs. I feel like if I would have made the pitch and we'd scored, it would have been the greatest play in college history.

  • Reggie: I'll be back next year.

  • Reggie: (On himself) Off the field, I'm quiet. On the field, I'm probably the exact opposite of that. Split personality on and off the field.

  • Reggie: (On his style) I don't really look at other people's moves and copy them because, when I'm on the field, I'm not going to remember them. It's just something that has a lot to do with instinct and vision and all those running back aspects that you have. You put them all into a basket, and you just use them on the field and go out there and make plays.

  • Reggie: (On his expectations) I expect great things out of myself. I expect to make great plays, great moves. In my mind, I can never be good enough... It just comes with the territory of making the most of what God has given you. I'm just trying to make the most out of a blessing I was given.
