5. If not Red Shirted, have you had a chance to play in a game yet? Yes, I am the starter.

6. Biggest memory/moment so far your freshman year? I got the opportunity to kick a game winner for my team on my first field of my career.

7. The 2 biggest differences between high school and college football:  It's a lot faster. You have to be the ball off a lot faster too.
