How has your season gone, team-wise?
"As a team, we have done really good. A lot of people didn't expect us to be this good because we didn't have Jerious (Norwood). I took that as a big challenge to prove everybody wrong."

What were the scores of your three games?
"The first game against Madison Central we won 29-12, the second game against Clinton the score was 20-9 and last night against Pearl we won 49-15."

How have you done, individually?
"As far as tackles go, I think I have something like 33 in three games. Last night (Friday night) I had 2 receptions for 96 yards and a touchdown."

Why did they decide to throw to you?
"I don't know. I'm just glad they gave me a chance."

Did you have to juke anyone on either catch?
"I had to juke one of them. My teammate gave me a great block, and I took it from there 66 yards."

Sixty-six yards?
"Yeah, 66 yards."

Ken, what colleges, other than Mississippi State, have called you since September 1st, the first day that coaches could start calling prospects again?
"I've received calls from South Carolina, Southern (Miss), Ole Miss and Georgia Tech."

Are you still firmly committed to Mississippi State?
"Yeah."
