Q: How does it feel to be back for your last season?
A: I’m ready to get started. It seems like a long time since the bowl game, but I’m ready to get started.
Q: How much will the defense focus on getting turnovers?
A: A lot. Fumbles, strips, interceptions — we need a lot to win games. It’s real big.
Q: How are you helping the less experienced players on the defense?
A: I talk to them, I show them film, whatever it takes. Because our young guys, they really don’t know what it’s going to be like (on Saturdays), so I try to go and show them film or talk to them about it.
Q: How do you want to close out your career at UF?
A: As a champion, but I want to have fun with these guys. I love all these guys, offense and defense. I just want to win.
Q: Did you ever think you would be one of the older players on the team?
A: I didn’t, but it’s alright. I like it.
Q: Is the secondary a weakness for the team this year?
A: No, we’re good. We’re alright now because we had five or six guys come in.
Q: Is the secondary not getting the respect it deserves?
A: We love doubters. We love doubters. We love doubters.
A: Because we get to prove them wrong.
