A: I did. I just think about life itself. You just got to be determined, and I'm trying to self-motivate myself by just coming out here and being the same guy every day. As of right now, what this really means is that I have to step my stuff up.
Q: How hard did you work to get to where you are now?
A: I had to come out here running every day and busting my butt off.
Q: What do you think of your teammates this year?
A: We got a good group of guys right now. We got Brandon Linder, Feliciano, Shane McDermott, Malcolm Bunche, me and Lewis is coming along. This is a real special O-line this year.
Q: Do you guys feel like you all know your roles?
A: We know our stuff. We study hard every day. We got to get it down and gritty, so we're just coming together as an O-line, and if anybody feels like they need help they shouldn't be afraid to ask any questions because we're here for each other and we're grinding together.
Q: There hasn't been a lock down on who might be playing the right tackle position. What do you think about the position?
A: We're floating and doing our job. We're battling every day, competition wise. We're just out here fighting but at the end of the day, we'll be alright.
Q: Would you feel comfortable playing right tackle?
A: Yeah. I feel comfortable in any position on the O-line. I have all the confidence in the world. I've been through it all.
