Who is your football mentor or inspiration?
I’d have to say my step-dad, he was always there for me growing up, playing football. He was a father-figure for me.

Just taking care of my family, being the best I can be, trying to be great. Who doesn’t want to be in the Hall of Fame?

What is your football mindset?
Every time I step onto the field I try to go as hard as I can. Everybody doesn’t get this chance. I’m just trying to take advantage of it.

Why do you play football?
For myself, for nobody else but myself, because I just love the game, because I just want to be great.

What is your proudest football moment or memory?
I can’t really point out one moment, not right now. Maybe some plays I made in college, but that was in college.

When you hear Steelers football, what do you think?
Hard-nosed football, it’ll make a man out of you. 


What do you like about Pittsburgh?

I have a great coach (John Mitchell) and I’m learning a lot from him every day. I’m just taking advantage of it.



What about Steelers fans?

They’re die-hard, they’re crazy and I love it.
