Birthday: Nov. 13, 1988

What is your favorite TV show?

"It's got to be 'I survived.' I love shows like that."

Who are your favorite singers in your MP3 player?

"Johnny Cash, Hank Williams Jr., or Waylon Jennings. I like those old country guys."

What do you drive?

"I drive a Nissan Maxima. But I'm trying to get a truck. I'm waiting for it to get a year older."

Do you have any superstitions?

"Yeah, whenever I get dressed I always have to put my left-side stuff on before my right. And then when I take it off, I have to take off the right-side stuff first.

"Also, when I eat, I only eat one thing at a time. It's kind of a weird thing. I don't know why I do it."

Who are three people you would like to invite for dinner?

"Probably Johnny Cash. Let's see, who else? Probably those same country singers I was talking about."

Did you have to go through any freshmen initiation?

"When I came in, we had to sing Karaoke on the first day. I had to do that."

What is a talent you would like to have?

"I've always wished I could be a musician. I've always wished I could play music or sing, but I can't do either. I'm a horrible singer."

What would be the menu for your last meal?

"Crab legs, potatoes, smoked sausage, some brisket. That's a big meal, but I eat a lot."

Do you have a favorite professional sports team?

"Dallas Cowboys. Hands down."

Who would be your dream date?

"Man, that's a tough one. Probably like Scarlett Johansson or someone like that."

Who are your heroes?

"It's got to be my family - my mom, my dad and my brother.

"Just the way they've led me and given me good examples. My mom and my dad didn't have a lot of support growing up, and the way they became who they are, they made it through all on their own basically."

Do you have a motto in life?

"Yeah, it came from (former Sooner tight end) Lance Donley. He's from Weatherford, too. My basketball coach was always telling me that he would say, 'The biggest room in the world is the room for improvement.'"

"I don't know if Lance made it up, but he was the one always saying it."
