Fiesta Bowl Receiver Comparison

Warrick and Co. vs. Price and Co.

A victory in the Fiesta Bowl could very well come down to which teams receivers are able to make more big plays. The game boasts two of the top receivers in the nation in FSU’s Peter Warrick and UT’s Peerless Price.

Quoting the Receivers

FSU’s Peter Warrick

  • On what makes him elusive and difficult to handle:
    “It’s what I do after I catch the ball. When you have God’s gift, you have to use it to the best of your ability. Everytime I get the ball, I feel like I have to do something with it. But when you try to do to much, bad things happen – you have to let the game come to you.”

  • On what his future plans are after the season:
    “If we win this bowl, I’ll have to weigh my options. If I decide to come back, I’ll come back to try and win another national chamonship. If I choose to go to the next level, I want to make sure I am doing the best thing for Pete, because I have a little girl I need to take care of.”
