In an interview after the game, Nowell expressed his excitement and pride over breaking such a prestigious record. "Being able to play in front of my family and friends here in New York City is always special," said Nowell. "But being able to break this record makes it even more unforgettable."
Nowell's impressive performance did not go unnoticed as he received praise from all around the country including fellow players and coaches who watched him play.
