“I really love it here. In Cincy, we’re always talking about, ‘Oh, I want to win a playoff game, I want to win a playoff game.’ But over here, we’re talking about winning championships. That’s what brought me here, I want to win a championship. … I’m just going to go as long as the good Lord keeps me strong and playing at a high level. I don’t want to go out there and put bad film out there. I feel really good.’’~Domata Peko.
