Q: Would you ever take a women’s studies class?

A: “I’m actually taking one now called Violence Against Women and Girls. I needed an upper division credit, but I also thought it’d be pretty interesting to learn more about the “female side of things.”

Q: What’s your dream job?

A: “Play in the NFL. I want to accomplish something that no one could ever have dreamed I could. I want my name to be remembered like Emmitt Smith.”

Q: Lady Gaga, or Ke$ha?

A: “Ke$ha. Lady Gaga is too out there for me.”

Q: How do you feel about the fires that have happened over the past weeks?

A: “It hurts me to know that there are people that have literally lost everything; their home, their memories, everything. It reminds me of back home my senior year of high school. We had fires that were so bad they had to cancel school and all athletic activities for like two weeks.”

Q: Most random spot you’ve ever taken a nap?

A: “Probably the middle of Norlin quad in-between classes after practice.”

Q: Favorite name for a pet?

A: “I would have to say my current dogs’ names Woody and Jesse. (From Toy Story).”

Q: What CD is in your car right now?

A: “I don’t have CDs. I play my iPod usually, but I’m most definitely banging Eminem’s new album, Recovery.”

Q: Gambling: Favorite game?

A: “When I gambled a few times back home at Indian casinos, I played blackjack.”

Q: Could you go a week without Facebook?

A: “Most definitely. My last actual login, not just responding to messages from my phone, was like June. I just don’t care too much. I just want to be able to message some people every now and again.”

Q: Favorite reality show dude?

A: “Probably Vinny on Jersey Shore. He ain’t afraid to tell anybody on that show what’s up.”
