    <font size="-1" face="verdana, arial, geneva, san-serif" class="body3">I would love to work in group homes where kids who are incarcerated live once they've been released. I'd like to be able to help them get familiar with society again and readjust.</font>

    <font size="-1" face="verdana, arial, geneva, san-serif" class="body3"><strong>Who is one linebacker you hate seeing in the hole when you're trying to lead LT on a run?</strong></font>

    <font size="-1" face="verdana, arial, geneva, san-serif" class="body3">Al Wilson from the Broncos. He's very physical. It's exciting to play against him. I feel like in order to be the best, you have to play against the best.</font>

    <font size="-1" face="verdana, arial, geneva, san-serif" class="body3"><strong>You were an All-American wrestler at Fresno State. Do you have a future in the WWE?</strong></font>

    <font size="-1" face="verdana, arial, geneva, san-serif" class="body3">Heck no! I train with Chuck "The Ice Man" Liddell and when he just touches me I get scared that he's going to hurt my pretty face.</font>

    <font size="-1" face="verdana, arial, geneva, san-serif" class="body3"><strong>It's well known that you're a boxing buff as well. Who are some of your favorite fighters?</strong></font>

    Muhammad Ali was an incredible fighter. He was a warrior and in a league of his own. Sugar Ray Leonard was so fast. Speed is the first word that comes to mind when you think about him. And I love Big George Foreman. I'm kind of an old-school guy.

    <strong>The average NFL career is three seasons and you just finished your 13<sup>th</sup>. You've just got six more seasons and you'll be playing into your 40's. Can you see that happening?</strong>

    I still love the game and until I stop loving it, I'm going to keep at it. I work just as hard as the younger guys and I take pride in staying in shape. I want to leave the game on top. If I felt like I was slipping and couldn't do it any more, then I would leave. For now I'm just going to listen to my body.

    <strong>What's on your iPod?</strong>

    I've got a little bit of everything. I have some Christian, R&B and country. I played in Nashville with the Titans for a few years, so I picked up the country there.

    <strong>What is one TV show you tape if you're going to miss it?</strong>

    "All My Children."

    <strong>What's your favorite movie?</strong>

    "Braveheart" and "The Usual Suspects" are my two favorites. They're both very intense.

    <strong>What's your favorite meal?</strong>

    Mexican food, particularly carne asada. I also love pizza with pepperoni, mushroom and Canadian bacon all together.

    <strong>Who was your favorite team and player growing up?</strong>

    Believe it or not, I was a Chargers fan. I loved Chuck Muncie, Kellen Winslow, Charlie Joiner and James Brooks. It was fun watching them make all the playoff runs. I remember watching Winslow block all the field goals against Miami. I used to love the way Dan Fouts dropped back and slung the football around. Fouts was probably my favorite player when I was young.
