Thoughts on productivity:
I just try to play my part on the team. That's going in there and just execute and do my job. T.J. [Williams] is the starter so I just go in and give it all I got. I'm only in there like 33 plays, as you said, so I just make sure I try and make the biggest impact that I can.

Do you take pride in blocking?
Yes, I take pride in just about everything I do on the field. Whether it's blocking, whether it's running a route knowing I'm not getting the ball or that I am going to get the ball. I just try to give 100% everytime.

Looks like they created a new category for you called a decleater. Talk a little bit about what that is:
[Laughing] That's just more of a mentality that I have. If I know I can basically smash a guy on any given play I'm going to go at him.

When they were grading the game, did coach Cignetti mention that to you?
Definitely... he definitely did. They just said I did a good job, that I showed a lot of emotion on the field and that I gave 100%.

What was your favorite play from the Virginia Tech game?
I've got to say it was the '98 crackback...' when I came from the outside, went inside and cracked the defensive end.

Did you admire that block afterwards?
[Laughing] Yea... oh yea.

When you were at Hargrave, was blocking your main role?
It was a little of both. There were some games where I caught five, six, or seven balls and there were some games where I caught two balls and blocked a lot.

I really went in playing defensive end, but as far as up there I'd say it was probably more blocking.
