Running back: Juan Day

Hometown/school: North Little Rock

Height: 6-2

Weight: 210

Welcome to the SEC moment: My first practice and when I hit the weight room. Everything was just so fast-paced. It's very different, that's when I realized.

Favorite Coach Bielema saying: What he tells us about preparation. He said we have to prepare our bodies for the next practice.

Favorite meal: Slim Chickens. I get the three piece chicken and the three piece wings. It’s like chicken strips with the special slim sauce they put on it. I get fries with it

Funniest teammate: Deatrich Wise. I don't know, he just does weird stuff on the football field. You’ll just see him like laying down. He’s just funny.

Must watch TV show: I haven't watched TV since I’ve been up here. I really don't have time. If I had time it would probably be ESPN.

Teammate that’s going to have a breakout season: I think pretty much anybody can have a breakout season. It’s just whoever goes out and makes a play

Dream date: Skylar Diggins

Strength and conditioning coach Ben Herbert is: He’s a cool guy. Some guys say they're intimidated by him, but I believe I’ve built a good relationship with him. He tells me what I need to do with my body. What I need to do to gain weight and get stronger in the weight room.

Thing you miss the most about being away from home: I just miss my family sometimes. I talk to my dad every night and we talk about football and what I need to do. He tells me I need to do extra stuff outside of football to get better
