Q: How important is playing college football?
A: I’ve always had the mentality that I wanted to play college football and then play in the NFL. It’s something I believe I can do.
Q: When you thought of playing college football, what team did you picture yourself with?
A: I’ve always been more of an NFL fan, but I always like the Gophers, the Florida Gators, USC. I liked Texas when they had Vince Young.
Q: Have you always been the biggest kid on the team?
A: I’ve been big since the day I was born. I was a double-striper in youth football [stripes indicate weight limits for carrying the football]. I wasn’t allowed to touch the ball.
Q: Have you ever scored?
A: In eighth grade, I was playing noseguard and I took the handoff from the other team and ran it back for a touchdown. That was pretty cool. It was the only time I’ve ever touched the ball.
Q: Do you ever ask your coach for a chance to carry the ball?
A: Every day I’m bugging him about letting me play tight end or something. I could be the next great QB. I can gun and I’ve got pretty good hands.
Q: Is there any place where your size works against you?
A: Definitely in cars. In my friends’ cars, I always have to sit shotgun and hope they have a sunroof to stick my head out a little bit.
