I want people to think they cant die until they see me play.
Im nice because, when I was growing up, so many people werent nice to me, and I remember how that felt. And I dont want to make anyone else feel like that. I value nice.
I know when people look at methe dreads or whateverthey go by this perception, but its a perception based on TV. You have dreads or a pierced nose and right away youre a bad person. Im not like that. But I dont mind people thinking like that. I want to be the example that you cant judge a book by its cover.
Coaches want so many things from a back. Its hard to find someone like Edgerrin James or Marshall Faulk, someone you can trust to block, catch and be physical. But I can do all those things.
I am more mature. Im a better football player. I just feel like this is my time.
Ive looked at great running backs like Barry Sanders and Marcus Allen, and I know Im special like that. And when I look at all the things that have prevented me from reaching that level, I know what the biggest problem was: Me.
"Football is my job, not my life, but it's a job I'm going to give my all for as long as I'm in it."
"My helmet is off; I'm not afraid anymore."
