On his first start:
It felt great. I knew Coach Klemm would put me out there eventually and they would watch my shoulder, I went out there and it was good to be back out there on the field.
On his shoulder:
Anything can happen to the shoulder when you're on the offensive line and when you deal with a shoulder like mine, but you try to go hard every play so you don't have a bad situation.
On when he felt comfortable:
I think after the first series, it all kind of clicked and felt good and I was able to focus on my technique.
On if Mora and Klemm said anything to him:
We were all together as a team and celebrating the win together.
