Funniest teammate: I would have to say James Bailey. He could make anybody laugh.
Prettiest: Besides myself I would have to say Nick Polk, he has the baby face on the team.
Most athletic: Again myself and Ryan Marando. He is very athletic.
Most humble: I am very humble but another humble person would be Nick Polk he is a very good player and never says anything to anyone about his talents.
Funniest team moment: When we have our talent show at the end of every training camp. Last year when we had James Bailey, Jerry Williams, Brandon Mosely, and Brandon Walker-Roby do a skit together about having fresh legs for the season after a long and stressful camp has to be the funniest thing I have ever seen. I will see if i can get a copy of the video posted so you guys can see what i mean.
Personal goal for the season: "Play 13". As an individual, return 5 or more kick returns for touchdowns and gain over 1,000 yards rushing. Impossible? Never!! "The sky is the limit!!!!" Hope you guys enjoyed it.
