What are your measurements
(height, weight and forty time)?
5-11/223/4.3-4.4 40 time unofficially.
How did you get into
football in the first place?
I played basketball growing up. About at the
age of eight, my coach was coaching basketball
and football. He noticed that I was a little
rough out on the basketball court and he
encouraged me to come out for football.
What schools were
interested in you when you were coming out of
My final four were ASU, Northwestern,
Oregon, and Utah.
What made you choose Arizona State?
I felt like I could thrive at ASU and with the
offense. It was a pro style offense at the
time. I also enjoyed the city and felt like I
could thrive at the school as well.
Describe your junior
season to us.
It was exciting. I reached a couple of
personnel milestones like tying the most TD in
the Pac-12, but I know we have some stuff to
take care of as a team. We had some ups and
downs last year as a team, but personally it was
How proud are you of the
school record that you set last year (18 rushing
Very proud. It’s great that my name will live
on here at ASU after I leave, but I would much
rather have our team succeed.
How tough was it to see
head coach Denis Erickson get fired at the end
of the season?
Very tough. I liked Coach E and his staff very
What are your expectations
for your senior campaign from the individual and
Team first - we want to win a Pac-12 south
title. I hope that we have a more productive
season than last year’s. We want to finish
strong with a Rose Bowl victory. That has been
our goal for the past couple of years. We want
to give our fans the reward for their support
over these past couple years. Myself - I want a
1,000 yard rushing season. I also want to
surpass my TD total from last year and set a new
school record. I want to be an All-American and
cement myself, as not only the best back in the
Pac-12, but in the country.
What are early impressions
of coach Graham based on spring practices?
He asks a lot from you, but in return he gives
you a lot. He asks for hard work from everyone,
from a two-year starter like me to a
walk-on. We are all equals out on the field,
all after the same goal.
What are your strengths on
the football field?
I feel as though I provide some veteran
leadership out there. We are going to have a
young QB and a young wide receiver group, and
not that our guys are not capable, but I think
having me in the backfield provides a calming
voice. It helps a great deal. Physically I
feel I am hard to tackle, and that our running
game as a whole sets up the pass game.
What areas of your game do
you need to improve upon?
I want to a bit more diverse. I have a lot more
that I want to show. I want to do a better job
of mixing up my speed, power running, and quick
moves all in all.
What are the highlights of
your football career up to this point?
I have two. Last year beating a nationally
ranked Mizzu team, it was a blackout at our home
stadium which was pretty sweet. Two years ago,
we beat U of A (Arizona)
down there. That was great.
Who is the toughest player
that you have gone up against during your
I really don't have one. They are all trying to
Tell me about your former
teammate, QB Brock Osweiler.
Brock is great. He was a great leader last
year, and I learned a lot on how to be a leader
from him. Just watching him, I saw how to
address guys, how to encourage guys, and how to
address our team as a whole. Brock is a great
QB. He makes the tough throws. He makes good
and quick decisions. I know that he is sitting
back up there in Denver, soaking it all in, and learning a lot
from a QB like Peyton. But once he gets his
shot, I know that he will succeed.
What do you enjoy most
about playing football?
I love the competition, and the physical nature
of the game as a whole. It is great to see who
can win the battle physically between you and
another guy. I also love the camaraderie of the
team. Doing things with your best friends and
all of us going after one goal is just great.
What do you like to do
away from the football field?
I like to watch movies. I have a blue nosed pit
bull named Deuce that takes up a lot of my
time. I like playing with him and taking him
Finish the sentence,

Ready for next season...all in (that is the
motto for ASU football next year).
