Linebacker Chris Carter

What was your favorite Halloween costume as a kid?
I always thought I was going to be a Ninja when I got older, so I was committed to the Ninja costume every year.

What was your favorite candy?
One year somebody was handing out money so that was my favorite. I went back to the house about three times.

The candy you got in your trick-or-treat bag that you always gave away?
I never liked jelly beans and always gave them away. I would give them to my brother. I would give him my jelly beans and he would give me Skittles and we would be cool.

If you could be a ghost and haunt someone, who would you haunt?
Do I have to be an evil ghost? I would rather be a cool ghost like in the movie “The Sixth Man” where the brother passes and he comes back and helps out his brother and friends. I would want to be one of those ghosts and help some of my friends that don’t see the same things I see or avoid things I couldn’t.

Halloween is about scaring people. What are your fears?
When I was a kid I used to be scared of Chucky (from the movie “Child’s Play”). If someone was dressed as Chucky on Halloween coming down the street, I would go the other way. My mom bought me the Chucky doll thinking I would like it. She didn’t know I was terribly afraid of it. I threw it away one time and I came back to my room later in the day and it was sitting on my bed. My mom didn’t tell me she saw it in the trash and put it there so I thought he was alive. I went back another time and put him in the trash and he came back again. I thought I was never going to get away from him. My mom finally asked how he kept ending up in the trash can and that’s when I realized that is how he kept coming back to my room. I thought he was just coming back because he was mad at me.

If you could dress up in a costume today, what would you be?
I would be the dude from the movie “300.” He seems pretty tough. I have been spending a lot of time in the weight room lately so I can pull it off.



Running back Jonathan Dwyer

What was your favorite Halloween costume as a kid?
Ninja Turtle costume hands down.

The one costume you look back on and say, why did I wear that?
My mom dressed me up as a Dalmatian. I was about my son JJ’s age then.

What was your favorite candy?
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

The candy you got in your trick-or-treat bag that you always gave away?
100 Grand candy bar.

If you could be a ghost and haunt someone, who would you haunt?
I would like to scare the heck out of my brother Jordan. He is always a clown. He is always trying to scare me. Him or my wife Kayla, one of the two.

Halloween is about scaring people. What are your fears?
I guess the horror films. I don’t like scary movies. I am not a big horror films guy.

If you could dress up in a costume today, what would you be?
Ninja Turtle for sure.



Cornerback Will Gay

What was your favorite Halloween costume as a kid?

This is going to be funny, and you probably aren’t going to believe it. What we used to do as kids was tell our grandmother we are going to dress up and be ourselves. She would ask us what we want to be on Halloween and we would tell her ourselves. We would go to knock on doors and the adults would ask what we were, and we told them we were ourselves. They would be like, what. We did it from the time we were eight until 12. We would put our football jerseys on and just go do it.

The one costume you look back on and say, why did I wear that?
I know my mom probably put me in something as a kid, but I can’t remember. I just remember being ourselves in our football jerseys.

What was your favorite candy?
Was then and still is to this day Snickers.

The candy you got in your trick-or-treat bag that you always gave away?
Tootsie Rolls.

If you could be a ghost and haunt someone, who would you haunt?
Probably some teachers that were mean to me.

Halloween is about scaring people. What are your fears?
I don’t do haunted houses. That is a no-no. I don’t want to pay anybody to scare me. That is one of my biggest scares.

If you could dress up in a costume today, what would you be?
Myself.



Fullback Will Johnson

What was your favorite Halloween costume as a kid?
One of the Power Rangers.

The one costume you look back on and say, why did I wear that?
A ninja costume.

What was your favorite candy?
Reese’s Peanut Butter cups.

The candy you got in your trick-or-treat bag that you always gave away?
Candy corn.

If you could be a ghost and haunt someone, who would you haunt?
Now I wouldn’t want to, but before I would want to haunt my brother Jamison for all of the times he was mean to me.

Halloween is about scaring people and fears. What are your fears?
I am afraid of heights and open water.

If you could dress up in a costume today, what would you be?
Some kind of animal for sure. Probably a gorilla costume.



Cornerback Cortez Allen

What was your favorite Halloween costume as a kid?
There were a few costumes I rotated. I was a Ninja Turtle, if I wasn’t a Ninja Turtle I was a Jazz Raisin, the ones that used to wear sunglasses and carry a saxophone, but I didn’t carry a sax, or a ghost with a sheet and cutout eyes.
 
The one costume you look back on and say, why did I wear that?
I can’t say that there was one. I was always such a big Ninja Turtle fan and everybody knew it, my parents knew it, so I always had that as my go-to.

What was your favorite candy?
Boston Baked Beans and Chick-O-Sticks.

The candy you got in your trick-or-treat bag that you always gave away?
Licorice. I hate licorice to this day. It’s the most disgusting candy ever.

If you could be a ghost and haunt someone, who would you haunt?
I would want to haunt Troy (Polamalu). I think it would be kind of funny. I teased him the other day, calling his name from behind the wall and he was looking everywhere for me. I think it would be funny to tease him for a little bit.

Halloween is about scaring people and fears. What are your fears?
I am afraid of going bald.

If you could dress up in a costume today, what you be?
Probably Rick James. That’s an idea I might have to put together.
