First Football Memory: “It goes back to Pop Warner. Before that, being out there with my cousins, they were throwing the ball to me. I was about six-years-old. They were throwing over the shoulder catches. That was kind of the training process of getting me ready for, you know, now.”

Football Inspirations: “The people who did it before me, watching guys like Deion (Sanders), watching my older cousins, watching big brothers playing. That inspired me to go out there and do what they were doing – and be even better.”

Nicknames: “Jay, Jay Hose, Jay Rock. To name a few [smiles].”

Last Book Read: “(The Science Behind The Secret) Decoding The Law Of Attraction (By Travis S. Taylor). I’m actually in the process of reading that right now.”

First Job: “My stepdad, growing up, actually his father owned a funeral home. I worked, helped him out at the funeral home. That was my first official job.”

First Car: “A Chevy Caprice ’87 (black).”

Current Car: “Right now I don’t own one, personally.”

First Famous Football Player You Met Or Encountered: “I met Tony Dorsett at the Walker Camp All American ceremony. We spoke very briefly. I got to take a picture.”

Dream Position: “I’d love to play running back. When I was younger I played running back and corner. I was running back from when I was younger till my freshman year of high school. And then I actually made the switch over to corner my sophomore year of high school. So running back would be that.”

Greatest Sports Moment: “Getting drafted by the New York Giants.”

Most Painful Moment: “Probably the past Sugar Bowl, losing a close game.”

Favorite Uniforms: “The Hokies. The combat uniforms we were in 2010 for Boise State.”

Last Vacation: “Went to Atlanta.”

Funny Football Memory: “David Wilson riding – he rode a bike on the practice…it was sophomore year. He was riding a bike on the field during practice. And the practice just started and he rode on the field with a bike. (Why?) You never know what you’re gonna get with David. He’s one of those guys, kind of spontaneous, funny guy. He rode that on the field, it was like, what was going through your head? But coach kinda got a kick out of it, they didn’t really say too much to him. He’s a cool guy, man.”

Embarrassing Football Memory: “It was probably the first actual game I got play time at corner my freshman year against Boston College. The first time I got in I gave up a touchdown. A deep touchdown. That was probably the most embarrassing, hurtful time of my career.”

Strangest Game: “I can’t really say.”

Pre-Game Feeling/Mindset: “I like to put my music on and go through my calls, go through my checks in my head. Kind of visualize the game in my mind before I actually go out there and play. Just kind of getting a mental picture of the game.”

Favorite Sport Outside Football: “I have to say baseball.”

Three Athletes You Like To Watch/Follow: “I like to watch Derrick Rose. Does it have to be three different sports? (No.) I love to watch Dwyane Wade and the Heat. I’m a Heat fan. I like baseball but I don’t really watch baseball but when I did watch it, I liked to watch Barry Bonds.”

People Qualities Most Admired: “Just genuine, funny, loyal people, down to earth.”
