(CNSNews.com) -- Following their 26-14 win over Baylor University in the Allstate Sugar Bowl at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, La. on Wednesday, University of Georgia Quarterback Jake Fromm said, “praise God for the opportunity to come out here and play.” He added,  “I want to represent Christ the best I can.”

During his postgame interview with ESPN reporter Holly Rowe, Fromm was asked, “If this is your last game as a Georgia Bulldog, what do you want people to remember about Jake Fromm?”

“I want to represent Christ the best I can,” Fromm responded. “I hope I can reach and influence as many people as possible. I’m thankful to play here, this university is amazing. And to play here every single game, every single moment has been a blessing. I’m so thankful to be able to play here.

Fromm, a junior, had 20 completions on 30 attempts for 250 yards and two touchdowns in the victory. He has not yet decided whether to return for his senior season or enter the 2020 NFL Draft.


 

Below is a transcript between Fromm and Rowe: 

Holly Rowe: “One of the best quarterbacks to play here at Georgia and put a uniform on, how proud were you tonight of the way you were able to connect and this offense was able to move the football?”

Jake Fromm: “This is awesome. Praise God for the opportunity to come out here and play. I think our guys responded well. There was no doubt from our guys who wanted to play, our guys showed up. They played their hearts out and to come out here and play four quarters, to come out here with a victory is a blessing.”

Rowe: “I know nobody will give them the game ball but I really believe your offensive line, this remade offensive line had your back. How did they show up?”

Fromm: “Cade [Mays], Jamaree [Salyer], Warren [Ericson], those guys, they got put in a big role. They stepped up, they played great. So thankful for those guys and their hard work showing off and paying off.”


Rowe: “I know that you have a difficult decision to make in your future but how does it help for you to see the bright future of some of these young receivers around you?”

Fromm” Yeah, absolutely. These guys are stepping up, they’re making plays. The best is ahead for them, no doubt.”

Rowe: “If this is your last game as a Georgia Bulldog, what do you want people to remember about Jake Fromm?”

Fromm: “I want to represent Christ the best I can. I hope I can reach and influence as many people as possible. I’m thankful to play here, this university is amazing. And to play here every single game, every single moment has been a blessing. I’m so thankful to be able to play here.”

Following the interview, Play-by-play Commentator Sean McDonough called Fromm a “class act.”
