Q: You are from Washington, D.C. Are you a Redskins fan?
A. No. I was a (Dallas) Cowboys fan and always have been. That always made for some spicy arguments around the house and out some, but I’ve always been a Cowboy fan.
Q: What is better as an outside linebacker, a strip sack or an interception?
A: I’d prefer a strip sack, just so I can have a sack and a forced fumble. So you can get two stats like that. Now if I caught an interception and also scored with it, I’d take the interception.
Q: Who is the most intimidating player on the ECU defense?
A: I’ll say Bobby Fulp from the safety position. He’s hit a couple people previously, so I know other wide receivers when they come to play us they know not to come across that middle. Somebody is going to be there.
Q: You played a handful of sports in high school, including rugby. How was rugby?
A: I loved rugby. I’ll never forget because I have a scar under my chin from busting my chin open. And with the physicality, I think that really helped me and I didn’t really have a lot of size at the time, so that’s what really made me focus on it.
Q: Who was really influential on you growing up?
A: My father probably was, knowing that he wasn’t there. Knowing that I had to do whatever I had to to put me, my mom and my sister in the best position.
Q: What is your favorite holiday?
A: Thanksgiving, because my family is a joking family. When we come together, there’s always jokes and it’s a good time. It’s about just having fun with the family.
