Knile Davis Running Back Arkansas 4th Season
Who is your football mentor or inspiration?
I would say Adrian Peterson. I got a chance to work with his this offseason for the first time. I learned a lot from him. It was cool training with my idol. I had been a fan of his since I was little. I watched him play in Palestine, Texas, at OU, in Minnesota. Just throughout his career I watched him and to get to work with him was cool.
What motivates you? **
My family and my goals. I try to reach all of the goals I set when I was young. I wanted to get drafted, I wanted to go to the NFL to help my family out. I've done that. Now it's to the Pro Bowl, Super Bowl, things of that nature. * What is your approach to football?*
Become a better person and football player. Be a good guy on and off the field. Do the right things, the little things.
Why do you play football?
I enjoy it. I had a lot of ups and downs in this game. I've enjoyed the whole journey, the whole road. I have loved it.* When did you start to dream about playing in the NFL?*
Probably when I was six years and I started playing football. I fell in love with the game. I was a high energy kid, I liked all sports. But I had the build for football, I had the speed for football. It's been a dream since I was a young gent.** * What is your proudest football moment or memory? *
I have had a few. Getting a chance to play in the playoffs was pretty cool. Also the Houston game, returning a kickoff for a touchdown in a season-opener. That was a highlight of my career. * When you hear Steelers, what do you think?*
Tough. Tough and a recipe for success. They have done it. There is a good team in place. I just think of toughness and successful.* *
