Has your size changed at all?
I maintained the same size. I didn't wanna gain or lose any weight so it wouldn't mess up how they wanted me to start the season. I've just been trying to keep the same weight of 285.
What does your workout routine entail?
WKU gave me a workout plan. I workout Monday, Wednesday and Friday, Tuesday and Thursday I run. On Saturday and Sunday I'll run and do some ab workouts just to keep in shape.
When do you plan on reporting to WKU?
I won't be able to make it in June because of my graduation date. I'm coming up in July, around July 10.
What do you plan on working or improving on through this summer?
I'm gonna improve on my pass-blocking skills, especially because I'll be playing at a higher level. I'm more of a run-blocker so I wanna see if I can work on that to maybe get some playing time my freshman year.
How would you describe your playing style?
I just believe that I've gotta be aggressive. Coach really built that into us. Even if you make a mistake, you keep going. I've always based my play on playing aggressive.
What are some of your goals as a freshman?
I wanna be able to bench press 370. I'm benching 340 just to get my strength up. The ultimate goal is to play my freshman year.
What's your favorite food?
Fettuccini alfredo
What is your favorite movie?
Batman Begins
Who is your favorite musician?
What would be three words to describe you?
Strong, aggressive and a quick thinker.
If you could date any celebrity, who would it be?
Kim Kardashian
If you could pick a fight with any celebrity, who would it be?
Keanu Reeves
What's been your most memorable experience playing football?
In our last game, our coach said that since I'd worked the hardest all season, he rewarded me with a special play. The receiver catches the ball and I run out to the right and the receiver tosses it back to me and then I run it in. It was like in Varsity Blues. We called it 500-fat man.
