When did you start playing football?

I started in Grade 8, it came about because I was 6’6” and 290-lbs in eighth grade so I thought it was the sport I should play.

What is your favourite thing about the game of football?

My teammates, being with guys all the time and making a family out of it has to be my favourite part.

What is your favourite drill and why?

I like all the Drills, Pat DelMonaco does a really good job. Anytime we’re working together and getting better as a unit it’s fun for me.

Who has been you biggest football mentor?

The guys who play really well here are my mentors, and all the guys who have been here before.

What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen on a football field?

When the rabbit scored the touchdown.

If you could have been there for one event in history, what would it be?

I’d like to see the pyramids get built.

If you could have lunch with any three people – dead or alive – who would you pick?

Seth Rogan, Barack Obama and sit down with my grandma one more time.

If you won $10 million, what would be your first purchase?

I’d go buy a farm.
