Going Into Battle
Dave McMahon -- How has practice been?
Roderick Battle -- It is been good. We are getting bigger, faster and stronger.
DM -- What about you?
RB -- I am not bigger, but I feel a lot quicker.
DM -- Are you a lot more comfortable here after a full year?
RB -- Yes, I am a lot more comfortable. It was a big change for me from high school to college, I feel better now.
DM -- What are you learning from Quentin Moses and Charles Johnson?
RB -- They taught how to watch game films so I can study how offensive lineman block and protect. They have showed me some good moves, too.
DM -- What about Coach Fabris?
RB -- He has so much energy. He really gets you motivated.
DM -- Do you have any defensive linemen in the pros that you are a fan of?
RB -- I was a big Buccaneer fan, so I liked Warren Sapp and Simeon Rice.
DM -- Do you keep in touch with your former high school teammate Brandon Sesay?
RB -- I try to. I haven't talked to him since May.
DM -- In your bio, it says you plan on majoring in broadcast journalism... is there a broadcaster you like?
RB -- I like the ESPN SportsCenter guys a lot because they have a good sense of humor.
DM -- Anyone in particular?
RB -- I like Stu Scott and Scott Van Pelt.
DM -- Thank you for your answers and keep on being as cool as the other side of the pillow.
