Q: What do you like most about playing football?

Q: What is your favorite part of game night?
A: My favorite part is when we run on to the field and go out for starting lineups. It gets my adrenaline pumping in my veins.
Q: What is your favorite football memory?
A: Last year when we played Bellingham, it was a close game at half, but in the third quarter our offense came out and exploded, putting up 35 points in that quarter alone. It was a good night for our team.
Q: What is your favorite play to run on game night and why?
A: My favorite play is a Counter 5. This play is great, because I pull around the formation and get a running start at a smaller linebacker or safety filling the hole.
Q: Who is the funniest guy on your team and why?

Q: What position, other than the ones you currently play, would you like to try and why?

Q: What drill do you dislike running the most in practice?
A: Pursuit drill.
Q: Do you root for the Huskies or Cougars and why?

Q: Who is your favorite NFL player and why?
A: Michael Vick is my favorite player. He has to be one of the most exciting players on the field. When he is in the game, there is potential for a big play every time. Plus he is on Philadelphia, the best team in the NFL.
