  1. If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?

It would be Eddie Jackson from the Chicago Bears. Reason is because me playing safety I watched him playing football at Alabama and he’s really a corner playing safety and has a good football IQ. So I would really like to learn from him.
