Now, only a junior, Lavey figures to be one of the centerpieces of what football coach Mike Gundy called the best linebacking crew he's ever seen at OSU.
Lavey sat down and answered a few questions about the Cowboys' historic 2011 season:
Take me back to last year. Is everything that happened still sort of surreal?
“Oh yeah, now that we are in the offseason, we realize that we still need to work and it's not just going to happen again, but it was a great opportunity.”
Is it almost a hangover effect because of everything that happened last year?
“Yeah, it all went by so fast. Where'd the offseason go? We are already back in spring ball. But I want to do it again and we are going to work at it.”
What was the best part of last season?
“Well, the Fiesta Bowl was a lot of fun, but the Big 12 championship (Bedlam) was probably my favorite game. Storming the field, my family was there, I saw my brother down on the field, that was just an awesome experience.”
How about the locker room scene after the Fiesta Bowl?
