"We have played one game and we won 7-0. I played pretty well. I guess you could say it was above average. I think we should be pretty good this year. I played at offensive guard and defensive tackle."

"I heard from 12 different schools the first day that college coaches could call. I heard from Virginia, UCLA, Michigan, Pittsburgh, Florida, Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, Michigan State, Northwestern, Penn State, Oklahoma, Iowa and Boston College. I haven't narrowed my choices totally down, but I cut off Oklahoma and UCLA. I just couldn't handle the distance factor with those two schools."

"My situation is basically a toss up with the schools on the East Coast."
