Kelcy Quarles got played by the media, and it’s ok.

Quarles was a productive defensive tackle at South Carolina, and got overshadowed by Jadeveon Clowney and his all-world preseason hype this year.

Quarles while talking to the media got setup, and asked about being teammates with Jadeveon.

The former South Carolina defensive tackle said he was tired of hearing about Clowney, and that he wasn’t the only one making plays for the Gamecocks defense.

I do get tired of hearing it, but it is what it is,” he said. “I felt like I was in the weight room working hard at 6 o’clock in the morning. I was the one after two-a-days running through hoops so I could get to the quarterback. I’m glad he was out there, and the attention he had, but at the end of the day I still had to beat my man to get there.”

Former Gamecocks defensive back Vic Hampton had a better outlook on it.

“You kind of get used to it,” he said. “But you know, that’s just the media. He brings the scouts, so you’ve got to show out and open up eyes and bring your own name out a little more. It was a great opportunity being on the same team as him.”
