I like playing on the defensive line because: playing DT is like getting in a fight every play. My dad jokes and says if you want to make your kid tough either name him Sue... Or make him play nose guard!!
Best football moment: A solo tackle on Landon Collins (Bama) when I was a freshman.. Was one of my top football moments until January 10th when Arkansas razorbacks offered, that was an amazing feeling!
My favorite play: my dad runs a play called the "shoot" he rarely calls it... Only when someone cuts me every play and the QB is under center and comes out slow... I angle and dive.. Like diving off a a diving board right about a yard behind the QB's feet. I've made some cool looking sacks because of that play.
