SM: How have things been going for you so far this year?
DB: Things have actually been going pretty well for me…

DB: I play right tackle.

SM: How big are you?
DB: I'm 6-8, and I weigh about 340 pounds.

SM: Wow, that's unbelievable… Has anyone been looking at you early on?
DB: I've been receiving a few letters from Georgia Tech and Maryland so far. I've actually met Coach Seamonson from Maryland. I've also met a couple of coaches from North Greenville and Wofford College.

SM: Who's been showing the most interest in you so far?
DB: Maryland has probably been showing me the most interest. They like my size and my aggressiveness on the field. They also like my GPA. I had a 3.7 on this past year. I am ranked 40th out of 300+ students in my class.

SM: Talk about some of your strengths on the field.
DB: My strength is run blocking. I am really good at that. I am really good at standing up my man and creating holes.

SM: Talk about some of your weaknesses, and the skills you would like to improve on?
DB: My weakness is probably my lateral movement on pass blocking.

SM: Have you been doing anything to improve those weaknesses?
DB: Yes sir, I've been doing a lot of footwork drills to improve my skills.

SM: Will you be doing any camping this summer?
DB: Yes sir, I am thinking about going to Wofford for their Wing-T Option Camp. I was also going to see about going up to Maryland for their camp also.

SM: Is there a particular player that you enjoy watching?
DB: I like Jake Long from Michigan. I just like how aggressive he plays the game.

SM: One last question, do you have any goals for next season?
DB: I'd like to win a state championship next fall. I'd also like to achieve a 3.8 in the classroom.

SM: Daniel, it's truly been a pleasure talking to you. I truly wish you much success in the near future.
DB: Thank you very much, sir.
