at’s something I have to put behind me. You don’t get this opportunity every year. I really want to be successful. I try my best whenever I have money to send it to them through my mom in Port St. Lucie, Fla.
→Can you help by making money in football?
That’s always been my goal and always to help not only my family, but people in Haiti.
→Do you ever find your mind drifting?
I do a good job of staying focused, but at the same time, I’m still thinking about it every time it comes up on the news.
→You’re known as a hitter?
One of the reasons I play the game is to hit people, and because I love the game. My nickname, the Punisher, the coaches gave me that. I first played football in 2005, my first day to practice and I hit somebody, I was like, ‘Man, it was fun.’ And it’s a man’s sport. When I keep learning about it, I like the challenge of it and the discipline of training for it.
