What is the weirdest thing about you?

I can do the splits. 

If you weren't playing football, what would you be doing on Sundays?

Going to acting class. When I was little, I lived in Los Angeles and was in an audition for a show on Nickelodeon called True Jackson, VP. Then at Iowa State, I majored in performing arts and I did a couple of plays.  

What is your favorite restaurant in the Dallas/Fort Worth area?

Cool River Café. We had one of our defensive line outings there and I really enjoyed it.

What is your favorite comfort food?

Baked macaroni and cheese. But I keeping going – greens, candy yams. I cook it all myself.

Who's your favorite actor?

Will Smith. I grew up watching Will Smith. I loved The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air when I was little.

Who are your favorite musicians?

Drake and Future

Who was your favorite athlete growing up?

Kobe Bryant. It's sad that he's calling it quits after this season. I'm going to miss him.

What is one thing you can't live without?

Honestly, it would be my PS4. I love playing Call of Duty and I recently have been playing that Star Wars: Battlefront game. It's pretty awesome.

What is your favorite fruit?
