On his senior season
We had a good year, can't really complain. Came up short at the wrong time. My goal was to beat my sacks from my junior year (14), and I ended up with 24.

On playing in the Shrine Bowl
It was great playing with future teammates (John Stamper) and other great players. It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

On Wake Forest's season
It was exciting and gets you ready for next year.

On getting a D1 football scholarship It's really humbling for me, looking back on how far I've come, being a kid and just wanting to play sports to this.

On why he choose Wake Forest
The coaching staff. Everybody is like family up there. There's no egos among the coaches or players. It makes you want to be a part of it.
