Interview Conducted By: Yoey Yo
Q: How did it feel coming up with that big 80-yard Touchdown this past Sunday?
A: It was a great feeling to be involved in the offense, I felt good because it showed that he [Drew] had confidence in me to throw that deep bomb.
Q: That touchdown was your first career touchdown right?
A: Yes, and it was exciting especially with it happening on a historic field like Lambeau.
Q: With the slow 0-4 start to the season how would you describe the moral of the team?
A: “We not on pins and needles” there is of course a sense of urgency but we feel like we’ve been right there in these games. Its all about us finding a way to finish the game. A lot of our games were really close, we just got to finish.
Q: Being a second year player from a small college like Walsh, How was it for you adjusting to the NFL?
A: Well I went to Illinois University for two years prior to Walsh, so I experienced D-1 games and what that felt like. I really feel like its not that hard adjusting to the NFL. A lot of people say when you get to the league people will be stronger, faster, and smarter which is true but I feel if you training hard and learning as you go, you also will become stronger, faster, and smarter. I think the only hard part to the adjustment to the NFL was recognizing defenses on the fly because defenses are well disguised in the pros.
Q: So just curious do you follow any other sports?
A: Well, I watch basketball and nascar.
Q: Well who is you favorite team in basketball? and Who is your favorite driver?
A: I don’t have a favorite team but I have favorite players, I like Kevin Garnett and LeBron James. If I had to choose I guess I like the Heat more. And with Nascar my favorite driver is Jeff Gordon.
Q: So you’re from Ohio, Canton,OH but tell me how do you like living here in New Orleans?
A: I love New Orleans, its a nice place to live and great food!
Q: You lead me right into my next question what are your favorite types of food? and what are your favorite restaurants here in New Orleans?
A: I like plenty of foods, I pretty much eat anything. I would say my favorite restaurant here is Mother’s and I love Mr. John’s Steakhouse. I love the steaks from there they are really good, I don’t have to use any steak sauce just salt and pepper and its great.
Q: Well tell me what are some of your hobbies outside of football?
A: I like to watch TV, I like to play video games, playing pick up basketball and bowling.
Q: I seen somewhere that you said you liked drawing and art?
