Question: What are your expectations for yourself heading into this season?

Answer: "I'm just going to go out there and do what I do. I'm a little settled down now, and this is my second year now. I'm just going to go out there and show what I've got."

Question: Will you be utilized in the slot receiver position this year?

Answer: "Yea, we've got a couple of formations where we've got two backs and one goes out to wideout, so it's going to be pretty good."

Question: How did you do in the offseason workouts?

Answer: "I worked out really hard every day, and I never took a day off. Just worked hard preparing for this big season coming up."

Question: What are you expecting from the offense, as a whole, this season?

Answer: "We just want to go out and have everybody play top notch. Every play we'll be running fast and at full speed. We're just going to get the job done."

Question: What are your thoughts on Robert Gillespie as your new running backs coach?

Answer: "He's a great coach. He's like the best coach I ever had, besides my running backs coach Carlton Terry back home in Conway. He (Coach Gillespie) kills us every now and then, but it carries out onto the field when everybody else is tired and we're still ready to go. I like that."

Question: What is the one area that you have improved in the most since last season?

Answer: "I got a little bigger in my size. I'm taking that to my advantage because everybody is talking about how my size is an issue, but I got a little bigger and a little stronger."

Question: Is there one particular game that you are looking forward to the most this year?

Answer: "It doesn't matter. We're going to take every game like it's the last one."
