Emotions are likely to run high for the Kansas State Wildcats as they celebrate Senior Night on Saturday against the No. 18 Texas Longhorns. Not only are the No. 6 Wildcats honoring a senior class, but a win would lock up the Big 12 championship and a berth into a BCS bowl game.
"I really recognize that I am blessed to be a part of this team," senior linebacker Arthur Brown said at K-State's weekly press conference. "It means a lot to me now, and I definitely think that there will be a lot of emotion that comes out during that moment. Not only me, but a lot of us as well."
That's no surprise coming from Brown, a senior with much invested into the team's success. Brown has led the team in tackles for the past two seasons, this year tallying 80 tackles, seven for loss, and nabbing two interceptions.
But Brown said the emotion isn't just about how well the team is doing on the field. "I thank God for the opportunity that he gave me here. It really helped me being around a great group of guys, and a great leader such as Coach Snyder. That really transformed me and molded me into the person I am today."
