On how prepared he was:
It’s new but it’s nothing. I just have to be ready. Coach prepares us and I just have to go play football.
On his nerves going into the game:
It was a great time. My nerves were gone but after the first few plays I was good. We gelled really well as an O-Line.
On how he graded out:
I graded out pretty well but there are some things I still have to work on.
On his first start being in that atmosphere:
It was extremely exciting. 50,000 fans. The white out. I settled down after a few plays and I told the older guys that this is a lot of fun. I told them that after the first series. It was surreal to march down the field on the first series.
On his stamina at the end of the game:
I was fine. We practice a lot. Our conditioning is fine.
On whether he was expecting to start this soon:
Not really but I was preparing for the opportunity and it came. I was there and ready.
On his relationship with Brad Kaaya:
It’s huge. We talk a lot. He gives me pointers here and there.
On the adjustment from HS to college:
The speed of the game is a lot different. One second in high school he’s coming at you. Now he’s already there.
