Question: How has your life changed since joining the Longhorn Nation?
Answer: A lot has changed since joining the 40 acres. A lot of really good things have happened that have bettered me as a person. The only bad part is some of the people that have just appeared in my life as soon as I signed. It's a new feeling and a new outlook on life and seeing who my real friends are. Other than that a lot of positive things have come out of it. I have now gained a huge network of alums and current students that will help me through the rest of my life. I have also added about 100 people to my extended family because that is what the guys are on the team. My family. Overall I have gained a lot of good things and a lot of good help which will come in handy over the next four years of my life.
Question: Talk about some of your goals you will try and reach while in Austin over the next several seasons on and off the field.
Answer: Over the next several years there will be a lot of different goals that I will be striving for. On the field, my goals are to be a starter as soon as I can and help the team out as much a possible. I want to be a part of something great and help the Longhorns but a few more championships under our belt. I also have the goal of going pro which use to just be a dream. With my hard work and diligence along with some of the best coaching in the nation, i can achieve these goals. Of the field, I also have my goals I want to meet. This journey isn't one sided, and my academics are really important to me. I realize how hard it is to make it pro so I want to have that amazing UT degree under my belt so that I am prepared to go into the job world and make an impact for whoever employs me.
