Early Football Memory: “Winning the little league championship (age 10). (What position did you play back then?) Quarterback. We were down 6-0 at the half, came back and pulled it out in the second half, 13-6. We scored in the fourth quarter. (Did you score?) No. Handed off. But I got us down there though [laughs].”

Pre-Game Feeling: “I have like a pre-game ritual. I always look in the mirror, just talk to myself, do whatever I have to do that game to help us win, whether to be aggressive or be a leader, whatever it is for that specific game.”

Funny Football Memory: “Let me see…just when we play around with the younger guys, put one of the trainers in the laundry basket in Louisville, pushed him around a little bit. Had him spinning a little bit.”
