What made you
choose Utah State coming out of high
The main thing was Coach A (Gary
Andersen). He told me that he had a
program which he was trying to rebuild.
He wanted me to be a part of it. I
wasn’t highly recruited coming out of
high school. I was excited to come out
here and help him out in this rebuilding
Tell us about your career at Utah
I feel like it has definitely been a
learning experience to say the least. I
have learned a lot by being here. I
have learned a lot by being around
players like Robert Turbin and Michael
Smith. I had good coaches. They have
done a great job coaching me. They have
been given me opportunities to go out
there and perform week in and week out.
I am definitely thankful for this
opportunity to have a career here.
Describe your senior season from a team
and individual standpoint.
It has been a very memorable one. It
has been the most memorable one since I
have been here. We had the winningest
senior class to date. We are WAC
champions. The individual stats would
come if the team is playing well. I am
just excited to be a part of it.
You are going to play against Toledo in
a bowl game, are you excited about it?
Yeah, definitely. Any time you can play
in a postseason, you are definitely
excited about it. They are a good
team. They are one of the top teams in
the MAC conference. They are a very
good defensive squad. They put together
a great effort. Their middle linebacker
is really good. He makes a lot of
tackles. We have to match their
effort. It is not going to be an easy
game. We just have to go out and play
hard. We are looking forward to playing
What are your strengths on the football
I have good vision for a running back.
I am active on the offensive side of the
ball and give great effort on every
play. I feel that I catch the ball well
out of the backfield.
What areas of your game do you need to
The biggest thing would have to be
blocking. You can never be too good at
What is the highlight of your football
career up to this point?
For me, the highlight would have to be
the Louisiana Tech game. We beat them.
We had the overtime series. It was
pretty big to beat them and become WAC
What inspires you
to play football?
There is no better team sport. Everyone
is relying on each other to get their
job done. Everyone is dependent on
you. That drives me because my
teammates are depending on me.
What does it take to be a leader?
I feel like a leader has to have that
killer instinct. When it comes time to
step up, he is the one that takes that
step to put the team forward and give
the team an advantage. I feel like a
leader has to be consistent with his
effort and his knowledge of the game.
You can’t let down for one second. I
feel like a leader has to want the ball
in his hands on the last play or the
last drive. It is the biggest thing.
What is your favorite NFL team?
Growing up, it was the Vikings. Now I
like watching my teammates play. I like
watching Seattle and the Buccaneers
Who is your favorite NFL player?
Barry Sanders is my all-time favorite
player. He was very versatile running
the ball. He saw holes that nobody else
would see. Right now, I like the way
Adrian Peterson runs the ball. He is a
physical runner. He is looking to score
a touchdown and looking to run someone
over. I try to model my game after
What are your hobbies?
Off the field, I like watching movies.
James Bond is my favorite movie.
Who is your

best James Bond to date. Daniel Craig
and Pierce Brosnan did a good job. But
I have to say Sean Connery.
What is your favorite James Bond movie?
Never Say Never Again.
