William & Mary
Who is your football mentor or inspiration?
When I was younger my older brother Edward Cosby got me into football. My mom didn't really like it but he talked her into it. That's where it all started.
What motivates you?
What is your football mindset?
I never try to put too much pressure on myself but I always want to be there for my family. That's something that I take into every game, my mom is watching, my family is watching and I want to not only put on for the Steelers but for my family, also.
Why do you play football?
I love football. It's a time you can just go out there and let everything go. Show your emotion, and you get to hit people when you're mad.
What is your proudest football moment or memory?
It's either the day I got drafted (on the fourth round by Dallas in 2013) or my first college football game. We played Virginia and I had three interceptions and took one for six.

Who is the teammate that has made the biggest impression on you?**
Definitely Ike (Taylor) and Will Gay when I first came in (with the Steelers). They kind of taught me things I needed, outside of football, too. Whenever I had a question I could go to them about anything on or off the field, they did a lot. Also, when I was with Dallas, Brandon Carr kind of took me under his wing when I first got there.
When you hear Steelers football, what do you think?
Hitting, we're hitting and running to the ball.
What do you like about Pittsburgh?
It's cold. It's real cold. I knew it was going to get cold but I didn't know it was going to be like that. That kind of shocked me a little bit last year.
What are your goals for 2015?
What are your career goals?
Get as many Super Bowls as I can. I really don't have too many individual goals. I'd rather the team makes it to the Super Bowl. That's a big goal for us.
