    At the end of camp, I was, like, in tears, man. When I first got to camp, everyone wanted to fight, and we were rivals and all that. And then, when we were leaving camp, everyone was sad, because the camp was like a family to us.

    In football, I was always the hot head. I used to always get mad and stuff for no reason. I used to be an angry person, sometimes swear even a little bit. And when I got back to my hometown and started playing football again, everyone thought I was a new person. I was like, "Woah, where did this Quae guy come from?"

    I don't even know what happened. It was like magic. I don't know.
