He also intercepted a Bethel pass while playing safety. • Favorite athlete: West Virginia quarterback Pat White, “because he’s an explosive player and a game breaker. Also, he’s a dual-threat QB, just like me.” • What is on your iPod?: “I have a lot of rap and R&B in my iPod. But I have a variety of music, as well.” • What is your favorite class?: “Leadership, because I get to help organize all school activities.” • Something people don’t know about you: “I’d like to be a marine biologist when I grow up.
