"I don’t like to sit still."

"I consider myself a leader of this football team, along with a lot of other guys."

"I have the responsibility to work hard and get ready so we can take this team where we need to go."

"I hate to lose!"

"I'm out there having as good a time as I did in the backyard since I was five-years-old."

"You want to be playing your best in December and hopefully it’ll carry over into January."
