Football is about giving back, what is the coolest thing you have done off the field?

When you are breaking down film, what do you look for?

My biggest strength is that I’m not a selfish individual and I will do anything to win the game

Biggest weakens is my weight because of my height, but in the right program and good meals I will be able to play any skill position on offense or special teams

Michael Vick and the Atlanta Falcons were my favorites while growing up
