How do you like Fort Collins?

It's a great place, my sister goes to school here. I really enjoy the surroundings and I'm looking forward to this year.

Different than the Denver area?

Yea, it's much different. You have this whole area that Fort Collins is in and you can really become friends with a lot of people because everyone around here is so nice.

How do you like Coach Fairchild now that you're on campus?

He's a great coach. Coaches have to be hard because he has to do what he has to do to get us ready for the season.

Favorite play in the playbook?

Shoot, that's tough. I'd say "sixty edge." I get to the outside and get a chance to make something happen in the area my blockers make for me.

Predict CSU's record this season.

I think we'll go 10-0 our first ten game. I have a good feeling. Coach Fairchild has us on the right track, practicing like we play. We're going to be competing with some good teams, so we'll see how it goes.

Favorite place to eat in Fort Collins?

Probably that Chinese restaurant close to Qdoba. That restaurant is really good, has some good noodles and good sauce... Ya gotta love that.

Any game day rituals?

I like to get focused the day before the game because there is a lot of preparation to do. I like to pray a little bit and just know what I have to do the next day to succeed and just stay focused.
