Conference Call
September 24, 2018

Q: Talk about the confidence you possess to go out there and make the game-changing type plays youíve been making.
A: We knew that it was going to come down to just getting turnovers, and we knew we needed to have a spark for the offense. Thereís times when we need a spark ourselves. We ran to the ball. When you keep running to the ball, good things are going to happen.

Q: Were you guys playing with desperation as you guys are making those defensive stands? Knowing how important is it to come out with a win.
A: Two weeks in, I donít want to say weíre in desperation mode. I think we were more so hungry to get that first win. I know the first two games, we had done a lot of great things, but a lot of things Ė errors that we had Ė kept us from winning games and making us more so almost-winning, or an almost-team. So, we wanted to get over that hump and finish it out.

Q: Why do you think your style of play fits this defensive scheme so well?
A: First and foremost, I want to give all the glory to God. This defense is a very attacking defense, very aggressive, and D-linemen love that. Me personally, I try to make sure Iím always around the ball. When youíre around the ball, good things tend to happen. Just running around and trying to make stuff happen. Iím having fun with the defense. I love it so far.

Q: Is it meaningful when two rookies in (LB) Lorenzo Carter and (DL) B.J. Hill get their first sack? Youíve been there before, what does that do for a rookieís confidence and ability to take another step in their progression?
A: They know their importance on this team. It takes all 53 guys on this team, practice squad guys throughout the week included, to win on Sundays. They knew their importance, and I know it felt good for them to that first one under the belt. So, I was happy for them.

Q: As a defensive group, what can you all do better than what you did yesterday?
A: This is the NFL. Youíre going to have spurts where the offense youíre going against makes plays. Itís more so how you respond to them. I think in the fourth quarter, we locked down a little more, ran to the ball, and (LB Alec Ogletree) ďTreeĒ made a huge interception in the end zone to give the ball back to us. Just some little things that we can clean up, but I like the direction this defense and this team is going.

Q: Did you receive any texts or phone calls from family stating how well you played and how much you were talked about?
A: I got back so late, I really just talked to my mom and just a few people. Yeah, I had a lot of friends and family hit me up. Iím going to get back to them today and respond to them. Last night, I got home and kind of just called it a night. I was pretty exhausted from the game.

Q: Could that have been your best game ever?
A: I donít if it was my best game ever. I know I had a productive game, and it feels even better to have a game like that where we come out victorious from it. Hope to have more like that.

Q: What does it mean to you to hear Coach Pat Shurmur describe the defense as tough and gritty?
A: I feel like at the end of the day, football is football. Football is exactly that. Itís a tough sport. Itís a gritty game. Often times, the grittier, the tougher, the more hungry team comes out up at the end. Itís going to take that every Sunday to stack these wins.
