What did you want to be growing up: A professional football player. Dreams still there. Don't count me out yet. I just got to gain a lot of muscle, prefect my skills, and learn everthing about the game except the rules in the next few years.
What do you like to do outside of your sport: Play and watch just about any other sport, play video games, read a good autobiography by an athlete or coach, watch ESPN.
Superstitions: I always do a prayer after the final run out or the short time we have at the line before the gun. In my prayers I simply ask God to keep me safe and help me preform to the best of my ability. I then I end the prayer by touching my feet and heart and finish my pointing to Heaven and that's my way of symbolizing giving my legs, heart, and ultimately the race to the hands of the Lord
