"Always excited for football season to get here and now we;re just over a month until kickoff against Louisville and for me it takes on a different meaning. It kind of feels like I'm getting ready for kickoff kind of like I used."
"Those guys start training camp on Friday, so I feel like I'm doing the same thing but the only difference is I get to do it in the air conditioning preparing just like they are. But really ready to go, it's a huge opportunity and huge responsibility."
