What’s new Chargers Nation?
I’m sitting here extremely excited for my first NFL game Monday night. It’s been a long time coming, and now it’s around the corner, so it’s really exciting. It’s hard to believe it’s finally here, but this is what we’ve all been waiting for and we’re ready. And also just knowing the big rivalry between the Raiders and the Chargers, it’s going to be a real fun and exciting game. I’m ready to go. To play football in the NFL is a dream come true.
Thanks to everyone who have been leaving fan questions for me or who have come up to me on the street. Sorry I can’t get to all of them, but here are my answers to some of the more popular ones.
Why do you wear number 91?
I wear it because that’s the number that was given to me when I joined the Chargers organization. But I absolutely love it.
What’s your favorite bonding experience so far?
Just when I first got here, a couple of the guys on the D-line got together and had dinner. It gave me a chance to really get to know everyone and feel comfortable. We’ve been going out a lot as a unit so I really enjoy that.
What’s the biggest difference between UConn and the Chargers?
The biggest difference has to be that I’m no longer in school and don’t have to go to classes! But UConn was a great school, and the Chargers are a great organization, so they are similar in that regard. But this is the next level so you have to be professional in everything you do.
Which veterans have taken you under their wing?
Man, honestly, just about everyone on the D-line has supported me a whole lot. We all treat each other pretty fairly and respect each other, so it’s like a brotherhood. But if I have to pick one person, I have to say Antonio Garay has been looking out for me a whole lot so I appreciate it.
Well that’s it for this week. If you have any more questions just leave them here and I’ll try to get to them next time. I’ll talk to you guys next week, hopefully after a win!
