Quiet and Determined

Soft-spoken Karl Joseph presents a totally different persona during interviews and personal interactions that he does on the football field. There, the aggressive, hard-hitting side of the Florida native comes to the fore.

Joseph was one of the few defensive players to perform at or above expectations a year ago, and he admits that the team's overall showing is a motivational factor for 2013. Although not outwardly emotional, he lets it be known that he and his teammates are conscious of last year's showing, and are working to improve.

"We are walking around with a chip on our shoulder. No one is expecting us to do any good, so we are using that as motivation," he said.

Joseph also comments on the early showing of some of the newcomers to the Mountaineer team and shares his thoughts on personal improvement in this interview.
