Question: How much help have your parents been from a support standpoint the last two years?
Quarterback Patrick Towles: “Huge help. The parents are the people who are going to be reassuring no matter what is going on. If you are really high, they are going to bring you down a level and if you are really low, they are going to bring you back up. I had some highs and lows. My dad, mom and whole family, including my sister, were great about staying on me and just making sure I was alright.”
Question: What was the best advice your parents gave you?
Towles: “Just keep a level head. Playing in the SEC, there is going to be a lot of great and lot not so great. They have really been helpful.”
Question: What did they do to bring you up when you were low?
Towles: “Nothing really … just talking to me. I talk to my parents every day. My mom and dad. Sometimes I don’t want to talk to them every day, but it nice them being around and just being reassuring.”
