By: Alex Khvatov


Alex Khvatov:  Describe your first day of practice at the Senior Bowl. 
Mike Glennon:  Overall, it went well.  Obviously, it could have gone better.  It is the first day, and you are getting used to some things.  You are getting used to a new offense and the new receivers.  I think that it was a good practice.  We got after it.  I am looking forward to tomorrow.
Alex Khvatov:  You were listed at 232 pounds during the season, but you came in at 220 pounds at the weigh-in.  What happened there?
Mike Glennon:  I was a little lighter than I thought.  The other day I was on the scale, I came in at 226 pounds.  I don’t know what happened.  Maybe the scale was wrong.       
Alex Khvatov:  What can we expect from you the rest of the way? 
Mike Glennon:  You will see a classic drop back guy who can throw the ball around and make all of the throws.   
Alex Khvatov:  What areas of your game do you need to improve upon this week? 
Mike Glennon:  I need to be more consistent.  I need to consistently make completions.  That’s the key.  I need to execute the offense.  Hopefully we will complete more balls tomorrow and continue to grow. 
Alex Khvatov:  What is your goal here this week?
Mike Glennon:  I want to prove that I can be a franchise QB for a team.  I want to prove to some team that I can be their guy in the future and that I am someone that they can win with. 
Alex Khvatov:  What are your strengths?
Mike Glennon:  I throw the ball well.  I work really hard.  I am a driven guy.  I understand the game of football.  I understand the offensive system that I am running very well. 
Alex Khvatov:  What is your most memorable moment at NC State?
Mike Glennon:  Probably beating Florida State this year.  They were the No.3 team in the country at the time.  We converted three fourth downs on the last drive.  I threw a touchdown with 16 seconds left in the game.  It was a pretty good feeling. 
Alex Khvatov:  How tough was it to see your head coach Tom O’Brien get fired at the end of the season?
Mike Glennon:  It was really tough.  He was the guy that recruited me.  He was really good to me.  He does things the right way.  Unfortunately, it just didn’t work out. 
Alex Khvatov:  What are your hobbies?
Mike Glennon:  I am a very normal guy.  I play golf.  I am not that good, but I like to play.  I hang out with my friends and my girlfriend.  I play video games.
Alex Khvatov:  Finish the sentence, Mike Glennon is….    
Mike Glennon:  I am a laid back kind of guy.  But on the field and in the huddle, I can get a little more amped up.
