How old were you when you started playing football?
I was seven or eight years old.
Did you always want to become a professional football player?
As soon as I started playing, I did want to be a professional football player. If I didn’t become a pro football player, I wanted to make it to the Olympics as a hurdler or a decathlete.
Did you have a mentor or someone who pushed you to be the best when it came to football?
My mom and dad were my mentors, but they gave me the freedom to figure out my own path and let me figure out what I wanted to do.
What was the best advice you’ve received?
To whom much is given much is required. If you are blessed with a lot, you are expected to give back a lot.
Do you have a hobby?
I like to cook. I love watching The Food Network. Beat Bobby Flay, Chopped and all of those cooking shows. My favorite celebrity chef is Bobby Flay for sure.
Finish this sentence: If I wasn’t playing football, I’d be.........
Coaching. Anything to stay around the game of football. It's one thing I love more than anything. I’d love to be around it and share the knowledge with athletes younger than me and people who want to get to where I am or where I’ve been. I love working with kids. They put the fun back into it. They allow you to remember how much you loved it when you were a kid and why you are still doing it to this day.
What does #OnDuty mean to you?
It means protecting what is yours, being accountable and doing your job!
