” How I feel doesn’t really depend on how I play. If we win, then I feel good. I could play the best game, but if we lose as a game, I feel like I could’ve played better. Football has given me the opportunity to build bonds with guys I don’t think I would have even talked to before. The best feeling I get is when we are celebrating our win with more than four minutes left in the game.  My favorite memory would be after game one versus Sam Houston. I was interviewed about our performance as a team. I want to be known as a hard worker. Someone who worked for everything I’ve done. I want to go far into the playoffs. Seeing how hard my team works motivates me. Seeing how they put their bodies on the line every game on offense and defense motivates me. “
