This feature is designed to give fans a different look at the players they cheer for, and insight into their personalities
Last week we asked for your questions, and selected 10 of them and took them to Mohamed Sanu. Here is what he had to say:

1. What is your favorite class and why?
In my life? My favorite class was math as a kid. I just loved doing math. I don't know why. It was just easier for me and I loved doing math when I was a kid.

2. Favorite off-campus eatery?
Oh, Hanzel and Griddle. It's on Mine Street. It's great. It has nice wraps. I either get a bacon, egg and cheese wrap, I'll get a cheese steak, have bar-b-cue chicken. I just like their food.

3. What you do in your spare time?
Sometimes I hang out with my family. I sleep. I hang out with Tom (Savage) a lot and just relax.

4. Do you have any phobias, or any pets?
No, I really don't. I had a dog when I was growing up, but not anymore. Kind of put it in the cooler.

5. Do you have any hidden talents?
I can do a real good Chris Tucker.

6. What do you remember from Serra Leone?
When I first went there when I was a kid and my mom took me there, it was nice. It was always hot and the people were always nice. My mom still cooks some of the food. My favorite is cassava leaf. It's a type of vegetable, and she makes it great. A lot of players on the team like it.

7. What is your favorite food?
Cassava leaf, or Italian food. I like Italian food.

8. Outside of football, who do you hang out with?
My boy, Sean Tyree. He goes to Montclair State, and me and him are tight. I'm always over his house.

9. Does Joe Martinek talk bad about his dad?
Never. (laughing). We talk about his dad, but he doesn't say anything bad about his dad.
Editor's Note: Guess who submitted this question? Yup, so it had to be asked.

10. What are you going to do when you are done playing football?
Probably be a coach and try to give back to my community where I grew up. I feel like I could be a good influence on the kids and get them to do the right thing and be that father figure a lot of kids don't have.
