Can you talk about your trip to Clemson for the FSU game?
DF: It was a great game and a great atmosphere to be around. Clemson took it to FSU early, but FSU was able to come back, make it a good game, and almost win. It was an unofficial, and I have taken several there over the past couple years. It was a good time.
What are your thoughts on FSU from that game?
DF: I was watching their offensive line. It was good to see them progress as the game went on. They played a bunch of young guys, so it was kind of expected. After halftime you could see them play better and look better as a unit.

DF: It was good. It is big-time football there. I visited there this summer and knew that I wanted to take an official there to see how it was during a game.

Do you have a top 5 yet?
DF: No, not really. I working on a top 10 right now and I should have that sometime this week. FSU, Clemson and
How is your senior season going right now?
DF: It is going great. We are 4-1 right now, and I am playing both ways. I am doing real well on the offensive side, and I am second in tackles on the team from my defensive tackle position. I am trying to play my true freshman year, so I am working on where I need to be. Being 265-270 right now you can't make that happen unless you are incredibly strong. I just want to add some good weight. I am devoting myself to the weight room.
