“I can cook. I'm one of the best cooks on the team. Teammates that have been to my house can attest to that. Besides spaghetti, barbecue pork, chicken, beef whatever you want to grill, I can make it taste really good. And some desserts. Just ask my teammates about my chocolate chip cookies and my sweet potato pie.”

How did you become a good cook?

“I've been around it my entire life. Mom and grandma taught me well. I was always in the kitchen.”

Most kids are out playing ball. Why did cooking interest you?

“I played sports and loved playing football. But I'm a hungry guy for a small guy. You have to eat. I had to learn to fend for myself.”

So are you going to be a chef? Was your major restaurant and hotel management?

“No. I'm an education major. I just like to cook”

As far as football, how do you view your role knowing Justin Blackmon and Josh Cooper have left?

“I want to give an even better performance than I had last year. Everyone knows I'm going to contribute any way that I can. Whether it's in the meeting room, on the sidelines or on the field, I'm going to give it my all.”

What is one key to you having the type of season you want?

“Stay in the film room and break down tape more to get a better knowledge of the game, know coverage tendencies better. That way, when I get in the game, everything will slow down for me. I feel that can give me an advantage when I step on the field.”
