ECU WR Zay Jones on catching a FBS single-season record 158 passes this season: "I expect to dominate every game. I never go into a game thinking I'm not going to catch under 10 balls. That's just not the person I am, I want as many as possible. Some might see it as selfish, but that's just the competitor in me. I like the pressure to be on me. I want to be the go-to guy in the red zone on fourth down. I want it on my shoulders."
