Mike Sellers Q&A

SM: Mike how have things been going for you lately?

MS: Things have been going pretty well. Just working hard and trying to get ready for this fall.

SM: Sounds good… How've things been going for you on the recruiting front so far?

MS: It's been going pretty good so far. I've been getting a bunch of letters from different schools; stuff like that.

SM: Who are some of the schools that have been expressing interest in you early on?

MS: Cincinnati, Wake Forest, North Carolina State, Duke, and South Carolina.

SM: Who would you say has probably been showing you the most attention so far?

MS: Probably NC State and Cincinnati.

SM: What position(s) are they recruiting for?

MS: NC State has been recruiting me as a fullback, and Cincinnati has been recruiting me as a linebacker.

SM: Where do you feel you would make the biggest impact in college, running back of linebacker?

MS: I'd have to say running back/fullback. I've always been a running back. Actually, I've never played linebacker, but I'm supposed to be playing a little bit of linebacker this season coming up.

SM: What were your stats in ‘08?

MS: Last year I rushed for 829 yards, and scored 12 touchdowns. I could have easily gone over the 1,000 yard mark, but I missed three games last season.

SM: What type of running back do you consider yourself as?

MS: I'm more of a power runner. I'm pretty quick from sideline to sideline, but I'm primarily a power back.

SM: What are some of the things you feel you need to improve on in order to take your game to the next level?

MS: I need to work on my speed. Right now I'm running like a 4.7 in the forty, but I'd like to get that down to a 4.6 or a high 4.5.

SM: Any goals for this season?

MS: Yes sir.. I'd like to rush for at least 1500 yards this season and score more touchdowns this fall.
