"I was told this is the perfect fit for me. I am obviously very excited and feel very blessed for this opportunity."
"I feel as though I am a different player and I think a lot differently then others."
"The lord has blessed me with pretty good speed."
"It is pretty exciting. Watching boxing in person is a whole different speed."
"I consider myself to be a physical receiver."
"That [boxing] is not my sport. I have very fast hands, but my love and passion is football."
"I am very excited about this and I cant wait to get there."
