Football Mentor/Inspiration: Just family members that have stuck by me throughout life.   

Proudest Football Moment/Memory: Just life, you know what I'm saying? Waking up every morning, because some people don't really have the opportunity. Just life is a proud moment for me, and doing something that I love.

Favorite Teammate: I had a couple where I was at (San Diego) and a couple in college. I can't name them all and I don't want to get in trouble.
