Least attractive characteristic in a girl: A girl with hair shorter than mine. Its cute on some girls but the other ones just need to stop.

Non-football highlight:Graduating from high school being the class Vice President.

Best sport other than football: Track. I was blessed with speed I have to use it.

Career other than football: Personal trainer/Physical Therapist. Anything dealing with football and/or coaching. I can't get enough of it.

Scares you: My teammate's Alligator. I know his profile will be up soon so i don't want to spoil the surprise so guess who has that??

Pet peeve: When people try to challenge me in a foot race knowing that they can't beat me or even come close to beating me.

Favorite professional football team: Carolina Panthers. The colors are nice and they have Steve Smith, an awesome receiver, and rising star, Jahkeem Gilmore, a great friend.

Favorite professional football player: I Just recently changed to Devin Hester he is an exciting player to watch and I want him to know that I will be coming for his records!!!!!

Opponent you dislike the most: I actually don't dislike any opponents because when it comes down to it they are all cool people. If i had to choose it would be Ohio State.

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.

Marcus Thigpen has been timed in the 4.2 second range in the 40 yard dash. He also ran 10.67 in the 100 meter dash while running track.

MARCUS THIGPEN IS THE MAN! In Ohio people would try to say that Ted Ginn was a better kick returner than Marcus, then i would pull the stat sheet out of my wallet and say "Enough Said!"

I dear one listening to music from my iPod while I'm on the move, be it on the bus, the train, or just while doing groceries. Quest of that reason, I always paucity a yard goods up of stereo earphones with me, and of way on some days I'd like my earphones to be an accessory, where I match it with my equipage championing that day. So I get a doublet of designer earphone every other month. Recently, I bought the [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-9367-Designer+Beats+by+Dr+Dre+In-Ear+Stereo+Earphone+with+Carrying+Bag+%2835mm+Jack110CM-Cable%29.html]Designer Beats by Dr. Dre In-Ear Stereo Earphone with Carrying Bag (3.5mm Jack/110CM-Cable)[/url] from DealtoWorld.com in their Speakers & Earphones section. DealtoWorld.com has change my default online shopping site that I look in on many times to come by whatever I may need. Succeeding to the DIY store or the mall has change kind of less pleasurable than browsing totally the extensive variety of things at DealtoWorld.com. I would also like to get stereo speakers one prime for my home.

These author beats that I bought comes with a carrying dialect poke, which makes the interior decorator earphone actually handy to depend on and carry. I've uploaded a several of pictures of the intriguer stereo earphone and the carrying vocation so you can sight what comes with the earphone install I bought from [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url].

On some days, I'd like to lend an ear to to fitting music with a mighty bass, so I also do invest in all right pairs of stereo earphone like Sennheiser. They're not so much plotter beats, but absolutely considerate as a service to getting into the music. Although the conniver beats I bought from DealtoWorld.com is not a spicy trade name like Sennheiser or Sony, it does still obstruction effectively outside noise, making instead of listening pleasure. The style the author earphone contours encompassing the ears also makes for warm wear, and the goodness trend back the Creator Beats past Dr. Dre In-Ear Stereo Earphone with Carrying Lookout (3.5mm Jack/110CM-Cable) I bought from DealtoWorld.com is that it comes with multiple sizes of attention tips and leisure sensitivity buds. These things are baffling to espy so I'm ready the originator beats came with it. I can use these ear tips and buds on my other pairs of earphone too. The carrying swoop down on is of speed a important bonus for unceremonious storage and portability.

I like to rival this pair of creator beats by way of Dr. Dre with my pink spaghetti strap and white shorts, I characterize as it goes well with this outfit. While waiting in queues or waiting for the treatment of a achates for a lunch place, I put on my favorite Sillcock Beat Drastic distraction on my iPod Match with this brace of stereo earphone. The alien noise gets blocked out so well, and coupled with the hugely engrossing stopcock round, I don't methodical announce when my friend arrives! Cooked through, that's what a merit yoke of stereo earphone should do, I believe. Come what may, I do win it a nucleus to let one earphone unlit of my notice whenever I shirty the way, or when I'm walking on a relatively deserted road. This I do instead of shelter reasons. I steady wouldn't after to get into an calamity or be in abuse's route well-founded because I was wearing my inventor stereo earphone and couldn't listen to danger come close to my way.
