Trey Brown has you covered

UCLA junior cornerback Trey Brown has been a steady performer ever since he broke into the starting lineup as a redshirt freshman. His reputation as a cover guy has grown to the point where he is seldom challenged by opposing teams. BruinBlitz.com was able to get a few moments with the talented corner after practice this past week.

BruinBlitz.com: How was your experience at Notre Dame?

Brown: "It was a learning process. We played well for 58 minutes and we need to learn to finish and play for 60 minutes. We didn't finish the game and we ended up losing so it really comes down to it was a learning experience."

BruinBlitz.com: Outside of the game, did you have fun? What was it like for player, the atmosphere and pageantry? It looked like a pretty impressive stage to play on?

Brown: "It really was a big stage. My approach and our approach as a team really doesn't want to change regardless of the team we play. We have to be ready to come forth and play our best game no matter who the opponent is so it was fun to go back closer to home. I had some family out there and that type of stuff, but all in all we have to focus like it is any other team.

"We have to take the approach that we took towards Notre Dame like we will with Washington State this week and we have to learn how to finish 60 minutes and we take that and learn from it and go forth with that against Washington State.

BruinBlitz.com: Trey it doesn't seem like they are throwing much to your man this season. Do you think that is by design and that your reputation is getting out there?

Brown: "I'm assuming that it does. The coaches, especially around the Pac 10, good coaches are going to put their players in position to make plays. So they probably see that I'm a good corner and I have been out there for a couple of years now holding it down and making some plays.
