1. How do you get ready for a big game?

DFO breakfast mainly cereal and milk, eggs, and sausage. Listen to music before the game to get mentally prepared and focused.

2. What’s your favorite aspect of being a defensive end?

The best part of being a DE is that I really have one job, and that’s to make plays. I have lots of freedom in our defensive game plan when we play other teams.

3. How do you keep your composure on big plays like goal-line stands?

To keep my composure I just try not to think about it too much and just take it one play at a time.

4. Who is the person you look up to?

There isn’t really any one person that I look up to; I have had plenty of role models in my 12 years of playing football. But if I were to pick a player to look up to, it would be the Retired Safety for the Ravens, Ed Reed, because he has no fear and always steps up to make the big play when it counts.

5. How did you feel after forcing the fumble to secure the victory this past weekend?

I actually did not realize that I had forced the fumble until after I saw my whole team running down the field. I remember thinking to myself “Where are they running to?” and once I realized that we, as a defense, had sealed the game away, it was a relief that we had got that win on Mel weekend.

6. Would you rather go fishing with Matthew McConaughey or Mahatma Gandhi? Why?

Gandhi, because he is cooler, period. The end.
