OL, Nathan Collier,

Here's our second installment of conversations with Nathan, as we continue to look at Army's recruiting class of 2003.
ArmySports.com: Do you have any pre-conceptions of West Point?
Nathan Collier: "I'm just really excited about the chance to go there. I ‘m looking forward playing football at Army & getting a great education, which was one of things that really attracted me to West Point."
Nathan Collier: "I really admire my parents. Especially my dad, who grew-up with very little money, as well as my mother. He went out there and got two Masters, a doctorate degree and really made something of himself."
ArmySports.com: When we last spoke, you indicated that you were 320 pounds. What is your current weight?
Nathan Collier: "I'm at 310. I started running and losing a little bit and want to come in at about 300. I don't want to lose to much."
ArmySports.com: Aside from football, what was the last sporting event that you attended?
Nathan Collier: "The Stephenville vs. Brownwood game during my senior year. We won with a field goal in the last seconds of the game. We always play in front of thousands of folks and they are our biggest rival."
ArmySports.com: Who was your sports hero growing up?
Nathan Collier: "I would have to say Michael Jordan. I like how he dominated, no matter how old he was or who he was playing against. ".
ArmySports.com: Are there any TV shows you make certain you watch regularly?

ArmySports.com: If I were to look into your CD player right now, what CD would I find?
Nathan Collier: Probably a burned CD (we both laugh)
ArmySports.com: Have a great spring and summer.
Nathan Collier: Thank you.
