Year: Redshirt Senior
Hometown: Cincinnati, OH
How long have you been playing football?
Since kindergarten. I was quarterback my first two years. Then I went to tight end, fullback, offensive line a little bit in grade school, then switched back to quarterback and linebacker in eighth grade. In freshman year, I was safety. So I know both sides of the ball – all the positions except cornerback or running back.
What was your favorite position?
Not on the line, I can tell ya that. That was not my favorite. Quarterback, obviously.
Favorite Miami memory
When we beat OU on the last-second play [in 2012]. The guy took a sack and the clock ran out. That was one of my favorite memories here.
Paul Moses, he’s a different type of funny. You know that Icy Gum Bottom shoe story? You have to look it up, it’s hilarious. [Moses licked the bottom of his Air Jordans on live TV]
Do you have any weird pregame rituals?
Not really. I don’t listen to music too much, I just relax.
If you could spend the day with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
My mom. I love spending time with her. It would definitely be my mom.
And you’re from Cincinnati, does she come and watch you play?
Oh yeah. She’s been at all my games. Not every year, but most of them. Her and my dad. They’ll be there this weekend, too.
Something people don’t know about you
I have two different-colored eyes [green and brown].
If you could have a superpower, which one would you choose?
To transport anywhere. Just being able to snap your fingers and be over in China, that’d be cool.
