College football

Got a minute? Rashard Pompey, SR. RB, FAMU

What was it like getting 181 yards at homecoming as a senior, in front of family and friends?

It was great. The offensive line did a great job. Everybody was making plays, and it was great doing it in front of our home crowd.

You're in your last year and to some degree, the offense is in your hands. How much do you think about that?

It's not really a big deal. It's something I've wanted to do anyway: run the ball. The quarterback situation has been a big issue. I have to run the ball now. I don't want to say it's a good thing, but it's good to have someone reliable in that position.

Coach (Rubin) Carter has pointed to you as an example of leadership. What kind of role do you play with the younger players?

Going into the big games, I tell them what the atmosphere is going to be like ... try to keep them focused and get them ready.

It's more than that, though, isn't it?

When you lead by example, everybody follows.

Give me three words to describe Coach Carter.

Ohhhhh. Amazing. He brings so much energy to the team. It's too many words, I can't explain it. He's caring. He brings so much intensity and enthusiasm.
