By: Alex Khvatov


Alex Khvatov:  What are your measurements (height, weight and forty time)?

B.W. Webb:  Height is 5’10 , weight 182 and I haven’t been timed in the forty since high school.


Alex Khvatov:  Coming out of high school, what programs showed interest in you?

B.W. Webb:  William and Mary, Boston College and UVA.


Alex Khvatov:  What made you choose William & Mary coming out of high school?

B.W. Webb:  At the time, they were the only school that gave me a full scholarship.  It is a great program.  I liked the campus and everything about the school. 


Alex Khvatov:  Describe your junior season to us.   

B.W. Webb:  Last year, it was disappointing to finish with a 5-6 record.  We didn’t reach our goal as a team.  We didn’t make the playoffs.  It was upsetting.  We could have done a lot better.  It is hard to get used to.  Individually, I had a good year.  But I wish that I would have gotten more interceptions last year.


Alex Khvatov:  What have you learned about your team after spring practices?

B.W. Webb:  I have learned a lot.  We are a tight knit group this year.  We all hang out with each other.  We are a family.  It is like brotherhood. 


Alex Khvatov:  What are your expectations for the senior season?

B.W. Webb:  Our team expectations are to win the National Championship just like every other team in the country.  We need to take it one week at a time.  We need to win every week.  We are looking for a big season out of our offense and defense.  This is the fastest defense that I have been on.  On offense, we have older guys that are stepping up.  RB and QB are looking good.  We will try to stay healthy.  Personally, I just want to perfect my craft.  I want to get a lot of interceptions.  I need to stay and contribute against the run. 


Alex Khvatov:  What are your strengths?

B.W. Webb:  I have good ball skills and great leaping ability.  I am fast enough to stay with the receiver one on one.  I have the confidence in myself.  I think that I can win the battle one on one against anyone. 


Alex Khvatov:  What areas of your game do you need to improve upon?

B.W. Webb:  Probably getting in on more tackles.  I need to stay mentally focused.  If I have a bad play, I need to put it behind me.  I need to keep my eye on the prize and pay attention to detail.


Alex Khvatov:  What is the highlight of your career up to this point?

B.W. Webb:  I have to go with the UVA game my freshman year.  I stepped up during the game and I will always remember it.  It was my first collegiate game against the University of Virginia.  I was really nervous before the game.  I was jittery and anxious.  I ended up with three interceptions against UVA.  I scored a touchdown on one of the interceptions.


Alex Khvatov:  Which players on your team are ready for a breakout season?

B.W. Webb:  RB Meltoya Jones, LB Jabrel Mines, Ivan Tagoe (S), Jerome Couplin (S) and freshman DeAndre Houston – Carson (CB). 


Alex Khvatov:  What do you enjoy most about college football?

B.W. Webb:  It’s almost like everyone is hungry to make it.  The atmosphere is a lot different.  Also a lot of people watch you play. 


Alex Khvatov:  Who is your favorite NFL player?

B.W. Webb:  My favorite corner is Asante Samuel.  But my favorite player is probably Michael Vick. 


Alex Khvatov:  What is your definition of a leader? 

B.W. Webb:  This guy has to walk the walk.  He needs to set a good example for the younger guys.  You always have to do the right thing.  Everyone is looking at you.  You need to get the other guys to follow you.  You need to lead by example.


Alex Khvatov:  What are your hobbies?

B.W. Webb:  I love to roller skate.  I have been doing it for awhile.  I also recently picked up golf.


Alex Khvatov:  How are you at golf?

B.W. Webb:  I am terrible, but definitely getting better.


Alex Khvatov:  What do you want to do with your life after football?

B.W. Webb:  If the NFL doesn’t work out, I want to go to grad school.  I would probably want to get into sports marketing.  I also want to start a family and be a great dad.


Alex Khvatov:  Finish the sentence B.W. Webb is …

B.W. Webb:  On the field, I am kind of a talker.  I love to talk.  I love contact on the field.  I definitely like to have fun on the field.  Off-the-field, I would say that I am goofy, funny and always smiling.
