“It is physical up front, but it's more physical being back there. Coming downhill for a run, you come straight on with a running back. That's just something I love. You just get more opportunities for interceptions and showcasing your abilities on what you can do on receivers.”
“My dad used a lot of his boxing-mentality type stuff with me growing up. Just be tough-minded and never show fear or anything when you're going against an opponent. I've been using that since I was young. He put me in football since I was 4 years old. He tried to get me to box, and my mom didn't let that happen. He made sure he stayed hard on me, and I appreciate him. I feel like he's a really good role model for me.”
Trim away a bit of stubborn flab every day, never eating these 2 foods.

TONY JEFFERSON'S CAMPAIGN ENDORSEMENTS
* OU defensive coordinator Mike Stoops: “He's easy to coach. I think great players are easy to coach.”
