Ray of Light
Dave McMahon -- You are listed at 6'2", 277 lbs... come on you are bigger than that, right?
Ray Gant -- I am bigger. I am about 6'2 3/4" and about 295 lbs. I gained weight because I know I am playing defensive tackle. In the past I had to be lighter in case I played defensive end.
DM -- Which do you prefer, defensive tackle or defensive end?
RG -- It doesn't matter. I have played everywhere on the line since I have been here.
DM -- You have seen many great defensive linemen since you have been here... who are you mostly like?
RG -- I am my own person. But if I have to say someone, well I am a mixture of a few people. Some people say I have the motor of a David Pollack. I don't know about that since there will be only one David Pollack. They also say I have the strength of a Johnathan Sullivan. Overall I am me.
DM -- Any additional pressure on you as a starter?
RG -- In the past when I started, I had to do a good job because I was filling in for somebody. Now I want to do a good job, so next year when somebody will be starting for me, they will have to do better.
DM -- Describe Coach Garner...
RG -- He's a great guy. He is a hard nose person, but he loves us all.
DM -- What did you learn from your one year at Hargraves?
RG -- I learned what I should have learned in high school. It was hell at times, but I learned to grow up.
DM -- You are from Chapel Hill, did you go to a lot of Tar Heel basketball games growing up?
RG -- I went to a lot of the home games. My brother-in-law was an assistant there.
DM -- Who was the best player you saw there?
RG -- Julius Peppers. He played football, he played basketball. "Pep" was amazing.
DM -- Do you play basketball?
RG -- I try. I think I am a pretty good athlete.
DM -- You are a big music fan, what is in your car right now?
RG -- Dedication 2... Lil' Wayne
DM -- What would never be in your car?
RG -- I listen to almost everything. I even listen to some country. I probably won't have heavy metal in my car.
DM -- How much do you love football?
RG -- I love it. It is my job. It is one of the few things that I am good it.
