Q: Person who inspires you the most and why?

A: My uncle. He was great at football and I work out with him a lot. He brings out the best in me.

Q: What football player did you pretend to be when you were younger?

A: Ray Lewis. I like to hit people and knock them out, and that's what he's good at.

Q: Do you or your team have a pre-game ritual?

A: We have the same seating arrangement for every pre-game meal. Nobody can move, but some people try to.

Q: The most overlooked position on a football team?

A: Offensive line. They don't get a lot of credit, but you can't do anything without them.

Q: Toughest school to play at as a member of the visiting team?

A: Dixie County. They have a nice home crowd. It's really big. There are lots of people and everybody roots for them.
