Mike West Loves Contact
Question: You made the transition from linebacker to receiver this past spring. How would you say the transition has gone so far?
Answer: It's something new. It's a big change for me, but I'm just trying to go out there and make plays. Coach Spurrier asked me to do it, and I just volunteered.
Question: What are your expectations for yourself this season as a wide receiver?
Answer: To try to catch everything thrown my way. After I get the ball, I want to make something happen and try to make plays.
Question: How did the offseason workouts go for you?
Answer: I improved a lot in my weight, my strength, and my speed. I did pretty good, and I made all of the workouts. I ran hard, and I'm in pretty good shape right now.
Question: How would you describe yourself as a player?
Answer: I guess I'm not the average receiver, because I played defense. I have that mentality for contact and being physical. Most receivers don't like being physical, but I can beat most defensive backs by being physical.
Question: Do you think you'll take some teams by surprise this season because they're not familiar with you?
Answer: I think I will. Nobody will really know what kind of speed I have or how physical I am, so I think I'll surprise a lot of people.
Question: What are your expectations for the offense, as a whole, this season?
Answer: We can have a good offense if we pull together and play as a team. We can probably be one of the top offenses in the SEC.
Question: Which side of the ball do you prefer to play on, offense or defense?
Answer: When I'm on the field, it's whatever. It doesn't really matter.
Question: Which game are you looking forward to the most this season?
Answer: Probably the first one against Mississippi State.
