Describe your first day of practice at the Senior
Going to the stadium, it was almost like game day.
I had butterflies in my stomach. I knew that a lot
of people would be watching. I haven’t played in
awhile, so I was a bit rusty in the beginning. But
I felt like I had a good day.
I also thought that you had a good first day of
practice, what was the difference for you?
When we used to watch film at UConn, Coach Brown did
a good job with me and Dwayne (Gratz). He got us
comfortable with different types of coverage
schemes. He wanted us to compete in press
man-to-man coverage and be aggressive. He wanted us
to compete against every throw. I feel like it was
a good mindset for us to have coming into this week.
What are your strengths?
I have good length and good range. I disrupt timing
What areas of your game are you trying to improve

Who was the toughest WR to cover on the first day?
#1 from Texas (Goodwin) was fast. Wheaton from
Oregon State was also fast. They are both quality
What are your goals for this week?
I am just trying to prove to people that I am a
consistent and a reliable guy. They should pick
What is your most memorable moment at UConn?
Most people would think that it is winning the Big

Howard passed away. We were scrapping and trying to
get any kind of victory for three weeks. We got
that hard fought victory in two overtimes. You
could see it. We just fought so much. People were
crying. There was so much emotion. The game of
football is just beautiful.
What is the greatest lesson that you have learned in
Make the most of every day. Seize the moment and
live in the moment.

I am a cerebral guy. I am not the biggest or the
strongest, but I process information well.
Off-the-field, I am always looking at things. I am
looking at nature. I am always processing things in
my mind. My dad is a philosopher, so I get it from
