What is it going to feel like being introduced in the first game?
It's gonna be a great feeling because, I mean, it's been a long time coming, being a redshirt junior. I've waited on this moment since I got here, to finally be in the starting rotation. It's just going to be a big deal 'cause it's been a long time coming.
What is your favorite thing about football season?
Just the bond you get with some of the guys on the team. We have a close knit team. Definitely that feeling when you go in an opposing team's stadium and we just take the air out within the first four minutes of it, because we are up 'bout 14-0. Just hearing the whole crowd go silent. That's one of the best feelings ever.
Are you looking forward to wearing the new uniforms?
Yeah. I mean, that's going to be amazing. Especially the first game, wearing them in front of the home crowd. I think it's going to be sweet. I like the gold, man, I like the gold. The gold on black is pretty sweet, with the combat helmets. The ones with the big tiger on the side, I think those are sweet.
Do you know anything about Southeastern Louisiana?
They're a great team. I mean, you can never sleep on any team from Louisiana. I'm from Louisiana. I think in '09 Southeastern Louisiana was just establishing a football team, if I'm not mistaken. So we are just gonna watch film on those guys and see. (Football returned to the school in 2003, after an 18-year hiatus.)
Do you have an end zone celebration planned?
Yeah, I got it planned out. I've been working on it. Hopefully I can get it going. Maybe it could be as big as like Aaron Rodger's or Cam Newton's celebration, where I got the whole world doing it. But you've got to get in the end zone a lot, though. I'm keeping it under wraps. It's not even a celebration, something just real quick and simple.
