About how he learned the game of football: Right when the internet kind of started for football I was going to all of these message boards and trying to find all these clinics and everything like that because no one would teach me the cool things. And I always said that if I learned something I want to give back.

On Family & Football: When I’m away during football, like at practice or at school or stuff like that, I want to take advantage of the time that I have at home with my kids, because right now they’re six and three, and they do they still want to be around me. I know when they get older, they’re not that’s not going to be the case. So I want to take advantage of it right now.

Discovering the Air Raid while in college: I was like, Screw it! We’re gonna watch whatever comes on this TV. And it happened to be Mike Leach and Texas Tech while y’all were there. And we fell in love with it! We were just both football players. We played together in high school, we looked at each other and go, What is this offense? And why is it talking to us? You know, I’m a college. So I’m doing college activities. But I literally sat there and watched it. I was like, Oh, I love that play. Oh, look at this, this guy’s open. This is amazing doing it over and over again. And that led me into a rabbit hole of the whole spread.
