1. What area football player, who is not a teammate, would you pay to watch play?

“I don’t want to say it, but probably Tony James. He’s a friend, and we’re close like brothers.”

2. If you were coaching this team and you were trailing by three points with two seconds left in regulation and faced with and fourth-and-goal situation from the 4-yard line, what would you do?

“I would probably kick a field goal and take it to overtime.”

3.Talk about your recruiting situation, what offers do you have and what is the toughest part of the recruiting process?

“It’s going well. I’m talking to a couple schools right now — a lot of Division I-AA and a lot of Division I schools. I got in touch with ECU, FSU and coaches have been coming to see us practice. … It’s cool, because it’s good for us as a team to get some of these guys the looks that we never got before.”

4. Favorite part of practice?

“My favorite part is probably defensive team practice, because we talk trash to the offense to get us competing with each other.”

5. What is your favorite social media?

“Probably Vine (videos). Like just me and my friends doing crazy stuff.”
