1. What have you done this summer to prepare for the upcoming season?
“Just hit the weights hard, really hard, harder than I ever have. We have a new strength and conditioning coach and he has been working us really hard. I ran a lot more too.”
2. Biggest rivalry game you are looking forward to this season?
“Keystone (Heights). I go over there a lot and always talk junk to all their football players. Just messing around.”
3. What is your favorite team to use when you play NCAA Football?
“Texas A&M with Johnny Manziel.”
4. Toughest school/stadium to play at as a member of the visiting team?
“Dixie County. They had trucks around the whole stadium, revving it up loud. It was packed that game, I loved it. We came out with a victory. Shutting their fans up, there's nothing better.”
5. Which teammate would win an arm wrestling tournament?
“I would say Buddy (Edwards). His arms are the size of a tree.”
