What do you feel are the skills and attributes you possess that will convinced the Chargers to sign you?Jason Murphy: I have good power. I'm definitely athletic and I've got good leadership ability. I'm quick and I've got good vision. So I can bring all of that to a team. You're a very family-oriented guy. What influence has your family had on who you are as a person, and how you approach football? Jason Murphy: They've helped me approach things spiritually. I pray before every game. My family is definitely behind me spiritually. That background helps you learn how to take on things. And my whole church family is behind me, and that's always a plus. You started out as a defensive tackle at Virginia Tech after posting 60 sacks in Baltimore during your high school career. Tell us how the decision came about to switch you to the offensive line. Jason Murphy: I guess it came mainly to get me on the field a little earlier. When I came out of high school I played defensive tackle and offensive guard, so they decided to give me a chance there and I just took advantage of it. Did you find you were more comfortable on the offensive side once you got settled in? Jason Murphy: At first it wasn't all that comfortable because I had been playing on the defensive side and was working on it at Virginia Tech. Defense is more of a run-type of position where you would shoot out at a person, where at offensive guard it was more about keeping your balance and keeping control at all times. Your teammates honored you as the most team-oriented player and hardest worker. What do you feel you did to earn that distinction?
Jason Murphy: I just went out there and put it all out on the football field – even at practice. You've got to practice the way you want to play. So I practice hard and focus on doing things right on the field. Off the field I'd try to help some of the younger guys.
