"Batman. He devotes everything to protecting people, and since I protect the quarterback, I also devote myself to protecting people."

2. Do you or your teammates have a pre-game ritual?

"We listen to music, just whatever we have. We like to give speeches to fire everybody up, and pray right before the game."

3. What is your least favorite part of practice?

"My least favorite part is conditioning, because all we do is run. I'm a big guy, so I'm not always crazy about running that much."

4. Biggest rivalry game you are looking forward to this season.

"Bell is always our biggest game, and also because Coach Harden used to coach there. But Mayo (Lafayette) is always a big game as well."

5. Toughest school/stadium to play at as a member of the visiting team?

"Also Lafayette. The fans are rowdy there, and they are always a pretty good team."
