Take us through game day, How do you prepare? 

• After a pre-game meal my routine starts. I go straight to the weight room. I stretch and get loosened up. Occasionally, my defensive line Coach will do a few curls with me. After, I might watch a little bit more film, and after I’ll take a cold shower to get refreshed. I will sit in the locker room listen to some music, before you know it it’s time to get dressed.

• I would have to say my Father. Being able to see him provide for my family throughout the years. Never messed a game, always supported me. I want to be a Father like Him when I have kids one day.
