Do you have a photograph of the blocked kick?
Oh, yes. I have one hanging up in my man cave and I sent one back home to Mom (Theresa Reynolds) so she can look at it.
What was going through your mind before the play?
I was thinking this could be the last play of my season, so I gave it all I’ve got.
I just wanted to get a piece of (the football) and see what happens.
Did you know Parkey missed the kick right away?
No. I turned away because I was frustrated. I didn’t think I had gotten enough of it. Then I heard the reaction of the crowd and saw the team running out (onto the field). It was a surprise. I couldn’t believe it really happened.
