you felt the most Tribe pride...
Getting the phone call from Coach Boone to let me know I was headed to Williamsburg.
Q: Take us through your
pre-game mental preparation routine:
I don't try to work myself up too much. I like to relax on the morning of gameday. I watch a lot of ESPN College Gameday at the hotel. For the bus ride over I'll put some tunes on, but that's it. Then I'll go outside in our travel gear and toss the ball with Rob Asmar before going out to warmups.
Q: What are some community
activities you or your team has done?
Recently we did a car wash to benefit a local organization called Avalon. We were outside all day, and even though it was a lot of work, it was actually pretty fun.

another sport at W&M what would it be and why?

tradition/activity and why?
Going to the Welcome Back dinners hosted by the various Tribe Football fans during the middle of Training Camp. They're always incredible and can't come at a better time of the year.

Q: Favorite place you have
