1. What is your proudest athletic moment? 1.  My proudest athletic moment right now would have to be winning a JV game last year where I called every offensive play by myself because our coach couldn’t be there on that day.

2. What is your ideal meal/snack before a game? Peanut butter sandwich and a PowerAde.

3. If you were trying out for American Idol, what would be your "go to" song? Headlines by Drake. Can’t go wrong with a little Drake.

5. What is your favorite movie quote? Bill Murray: It's 'cause I'm white, isn't it? Michael Jordan: No. Larry's white, so what? Bill Murray: Larry's not white. Larry's clear. – Space Jam

6. How does your faith impact your approach to sports? Faith impacts how I approach sports in a very big way. Just as I have faith in my teammates, I have faith in God, too. Football is just one way that God allows me to learn about myself and about my faith.

7. What is your favorite cartoon character? Spongebob Squarepants.

8. All-time favorite board game? Trouble.

9. Droid, iPhone, or Blackberry? Favorite app? IPhone. Youtube. Spend too much time on it sometimes.

13. What is your best quality/characteristic? Having a drive to always succeed.

14. Favorite junk/comfort food? Cheez-it.

15. What is your favorite hour of the day? Why? 10 a.m. because that’s usually when I eat breakfast and I can’t function without a good breakfast

16. What is your nickname and how did you get it? R.Kelly. My middle name is Kelly and there is a R&B artist named R. Kelly so when people realized the coincidence they started calling me by that name.

17. Where is your favorite place to volunteer/provide community service? BBQ for the Homeless or Catholic Charities.

18. What is one hidden talent that you possess? I can roll my tongue.

19. If time machines were real, and you could choose just one - to travel forward or backward - which would you select and why? Travel forward to see where I am in life and what kind of family I will have.

20. If you could pick one person, dead or alive, and ask them just one question that they had to answer honestly, who would you pick and what would you ask? Jim Valvano and I would ask him how he was able to be happy every day of his life when he knew that he was going to die.
