A: The best part was getting to show the fans how we were playing. I wanted to show them what they could expect this fall.

Q: What did you see on your interceptions?
A: I have a knock for the ball so once I see the ball in the air I know it is going to be mine. I just ran after it and made the turnover.

A: Yes it does. We are always competing. We want to win every practice. No one here can stand losing.

Q: Do you feel more comfortable inside or outside?
A: I feel more comfortable outside, but like I said I will do whatever it takes.

Q: How will you adjust to the linebackers that return in the fall and the new freshman?
A: It is not going to change anything. I just going to go out there and compete like I do every single day. The coaches will decide our playing time.

Q: Was the experience of spring practice what you expected?
A: It was what I expected. I knew I had to get the mental part of the game down and I think I did that. I am ready for fall now.
