On how the spring is going:
"It is going real good. From last week's scrimmage, we know where we are and what we have to work on."
On his performance in the scrimmage:
"I think I rant eh ball pretty well. But I think I need to work more on short yardage situations, you know, getting the ball in the end zone."
On his status among LSU's corps of running backs:
"I think there will be a lot of competition at running back, but I think I have the most experience back there. The thing will set me apart from the others is the little things. I am starting to fully understand the offense and things are starting to flow more smoothly. I not only know my position, but every position on offense like wide receiver quarterback and tight end."
On how he thinks the offense will perform in the upcoming season:
"I think we will be a lot more explosive. We will be much better off because we have so many experienced players coming back and we are comfortable with one another."
On being a leader:
"Coach hasn't given me the title of being a leader. But I know, since I have been here a while, I can help the team out there from a leadership standpoint, especially the younger players."
On his decline toward the end of last season:
"Toward the end of last season I hurt my hip, so that really took a toll on my playing time. But I didn't let it bother me. I knew my role on the team and we had two good running backs there already (Domanick Davis and LaBrandon Toefield) and I knew I have three more years to play."
