Q: You grew up in Raleigh and went to Millbrook High School. How well do you know some of the players on North Carolina’s team?

A: I played against running back Devon Lawrence (a Wake Forest native) a couple of times. I knew him and his brother Dexter (now a star defensive lineman at Clemson) while we all were growing up. I definitely know Devon, but that may be the only one.

Q: What’s a go-to restaurant if you have a date or want to go out for a good dinner in Greenville?

A: You know what, I went to Cheddar’s for the first time the other night and I thought it was pretty good. It also wasn’t too expensive, so I’ll definitely have to go back to Cheddar’s. It was really good.

Q: What do you like to do off the football field? Do you have any other hobbies?

A: I have a dog and and I love my dog. She is very energetic and I end up running around with her a good amount. Other than that, I mainly like to just hang out.

Q: What did you think of ECU’s uniforms this season and the new adidas brand pattern being used on the pants?

A: I definitely liked them and they were very comfortable. They looked clean to me, so I thought we looked good out there.

Q: How difficult was it to watch film from the North Carolina A&T game?

A: It wasn’t pleasant, but we still have to move past it and that game is behind us. We can’t look too much back at it now. We have to work hard for this next game.


Herring, a sophomore, has three-career touchdown passes, and they have gone to three different receivers. Last season his only pass attempt was a TD to Trevon Brown, and against N.C. A&T he threw touchdown tosses to Blake Proehl and Deondre Farrier.
