Why do you play football?
Love of the game. You don't make it this far without loving the game. Trust me you gotta love the game, the competitiveness of it. Also, I play for my dad.

Winning the national championship (in 2014) at Ohio State.

Just to help out this team the best way I can.

Leave a positive mark on the game.
