Insight from your favorite Blue Raiders

Senior S Ronald Steed
1. What is the one thing that stands out to you more than anything else from today's practice?

"I think everyone had a little more enthusiasm and came out here ready to work hard and go full speed every play."

2. If you could play any other position on the field, what would it be and why?

"I'm willing to play wherever to help the team. I just love the game of football. Wherever the team needs me, I'll be there."

3. What is the best advice you have been given?

"You are only as good as your last play. Go every play like it is going to be your last."

4. What are your thoughts on the 2006 season?

" I'm excited because if we continue to go hard every practice and every play, then nothing but good can come of it."

5. Which one of your teammates/coaches do you find to be the most interesting on or off the field and why?

"There are a lot of guys that are interesting but I would have to say Erik Walden. He goes hard every play and he's a good guy on and off the field."

6. What are some of your hobbies, interests, or hidden talents that someone may not know about?

"I'm interested in a lot of things. I like to write. I'm a guy that whatever opportunities present themselves to help further myself in life, in general, I'm all over that. I specialize in being an optimistic guy."

Freshman WR Jay Robinson
1. What is the one thing that stands out to you more than anything else from today's practice?

"The intensity was high. The defense really stepped and took it to us. We have to match that intensity because they are trying to bring out the best in us and we are trying to bring out the best in them. In doing that we are creating a great team."

2. If you could play any other position on the field, what would it be and why?

"The easy choice would be quarterback since I played the position in high school. Safety would probably have to be the position, though, because they sit there and try to clock us coming across the middle so I would like to see how it is when we reverse that."

3. What is the best advice you have been given?

"Never give up, even when you are tired you still come out and give 100 percent because that one play may make the biggest difference. Every inch matters and we need every inch of that football field."

4. What are your thoughts on the 2006 season?

"I expect us to do very well. If we continue to have good practices we will be fine. We had a couple of setbacks but we are bringing it all together and if we keep doing that we will be a good team."

5. Which one of your teammates do you find to be the most interesting on or off the field and why?

"Pierre Ingram. When I came here he was my first roommate and he taught me a lot about life and football - things that have helped me on and off the field, and he's a funny guy."

6. What are some of your hobbies, interests, or hidden talents that someone may not know about?

"I'm pretty much a low-key guy. I like to read and, like everybody, I play the video games."
