Q: What is your favorite from of social media?
A: Probably Instagram, because I just like looking at the pictures.
Q: Could you kick with your left foot?
A: I could, but it would probably hurt. I don’t think I could very well, maybe like 12 yards. If my other leg fell off or something and I had to, I could probably try (an extra-point attempt) with my left.
Q: What is your most memorable kick?
A: Definitely Old Dominion, a game-winner last year as time was expiring (in a 37-35 victory at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium). That was very exciting actually and was awesome.
Q: You and punter Jonn Young are good friends. Are you roommates?
A: No we’re not. Jonn is pretty clean though.
Q: How would you describe coach Mike Houston to Pirate fans?
A: I would say intense and committed and he cares about us all. Me and him go back and forth during field goal (practice) and it’s pretty fun, but he is very intense and a very enthusiastic person when it comes down to the team winning the games.
Q: What advice would you give to a student coming to ECU?
A: Definitely enjoy yourself and there are a lot of fun things around here to take advantage of, but don’t have too much fun because obviously you are here to get an education. Meet new people and put yourself in uncomfortable situations when you can and take risks. Learn as much as you can and try to find something good to eat, because that is not hard.
