Why are you playing football instead of any other sports?
I’ve been playing football for 15 years. It’s the greatest game on earth. That’s why I’m here.
Who’s your favourite NFL player and why?
My favourite NFL player is Walter Payton. They called him “Sweetness”, because there wasn’t anything as an offensive skill position player that he couldn’t do.

I chose Austria because the Rangers were willing to give me a chance when no one else was. I’m excited to help the club win some ball games this season.
What do you want to see or learn about Austria?
I would love to see Vienna and all that it has to offer. I’d also like to eat some of the local foods and go on some hikes. Anything that is a staple to Austria, I’d like to experience before I leave.

My goals for this season are to grow as an individual leader and to lead by example. I want to help the team in any way I can, wherever that may be. The rest will take care of itself.

The first person on the team I met was the QB Benny. He was welcoming and I even stayed at his home for a short period of time. He is a great dude.
