Talk about your senior season.

"Mostly when I line up they ran the ball the opposite way. 97 tackles. When they
passed it I was back there a lot so I had 16 sacks."

How did you do at the Shrine Bowl?

"I think I showed the other players what I could do.  I showed the coaches
what I could do. I'm kind of proud of myself for going there and standing up for
myself as a man."

What things do you need to improve on?

"I think I’m going to hit the weight room a little harder. I think
everything else is in place. I think I’m planning on making the field next year.
I’m not saying I’m going to start, but I do want to make it in for a few plays."
