JH: Considering the tragedy in New York City and Washington D.C., did you play this weekend?
LD: It was tough to play because of what happened in New York City and Washington. However, I was glad we played and I was glad that we could entertain people and try to lift their spirits. At such a tragic time like this people are stressed out and not happy, and I hope that for a few hours we could help them. Just playing the game certainly helped me deal with the situation.
JH: Did you win the game?
LD: We lost the game 7-3 and we are now 0-2. I have played very well. I was pretty explosive off the ball. My first step was very good. I have had several tackles, probably 16 or 17, three sacks and five tackles for losses."
JH: How many coaches were at your game?
LD: Several coaches were at my last game. The Oklahoma coaches were there. I saw Coach (Brent) Venables and Coach (Jackie) Shipp at the game. I also saw the Arkansas coaches at the game. I felt good about the Oklahoma coaches being at the game. They have said many times that I am their number one guy defensively. I feel good that the defending national champs think that much of me. I am pretty sure they were happy with my performance."
JH: Anything new in recruiting?
LD: Everything is still the same in recruiting. It's still Texas, Oklahoma and Notre Dame in no particular order. I still haven't set any visits yet. I plan on doing that at the end of my senior season."
Recruiting: Dibbles still high on Oklahoma
