Duquesne Head Coach Greg Gattuso:
"I just went around to each senior to tell them how proud I was of them. Sometimes it gets lost in the shuffle - what this team has accomplished. It is so difficult to win five outright championships in a row.
"It was windy out there today, and the field was slick, but we still played our game. We ran against the wind and threw with it. The only bad thing we did was turn the ball over twice deep in their territory. Marist is very tough at home. Our staff and these kids know and respect that."
Duquesne quarterback Niel Loebig:
"We have some great, great receivers. That makes it really easy for me. It never gets boring throwing the football."
