CN: What is the one thing that you can bring to this Iowa State football team?


Means: On defense I like to fly around and hit people. That's what I love to do. I love to hit hard and pursue the ball.


CN: What is the one thing that you're looking forward to most about college?


Means: The atmosphere. I can't wait to get out there. All of the people there seem like a lot of fun.


CN: Who is your football idol?


Means: I actually have two of them. Mike Alstott and Teddy Bruschi.


CN: Besides football, what is your dream job?


Means: I've actually never thought about it. I'd say being a chemical engineer. Designing new sources of fuel and stuff like that.
