Questionnaire:

1. Who is your favorite football player of all-time?

You know, I grew up watching Emmit Smith but I'd probably pick Brian Urlacher just because he's a lot more of a player like I am in that he's a linebacker and everything.

2. Why?

Well, I don't know, just you don't see too many tall linebackers and I'm pretty sure he's 6'5" and 250 or 260 and you just don't see very many linebackers at that height and that's what I'm going to be.

3. What is the best football team you've ever seen?

To be honest with you I would give credit to my class at Bixby. All through grade school and we came into high school only losing two games since like third grade.

4. What position will you be playing at Oklahoma State?

Linebacker, they've told me either SAM or WILL.

5. What will you bring to Oklahoma State as far as a strong point?

Other than just pure football I know my mind is going to help a lot, not just me but as a team I'll be able to come in and help lead the defense. From a mental standpoint I've always been the guy on my team where not only do I get where I need to be but I've always been able to help everybody else if they're out of position or anything like that. I think that's a big factor and I think that is going to help this defense a lot.
