First Game Memories

On His First NFL Memory:

It was my rookie year and we were waiting in the tunnel to run onto the field. Somehow, someway, I was standing in front. I definitely didn't want to be there, but I couldn't go back; there wasn't enough room and the officials nearby said not to leave.

Then, up walked Andra Davis, the team captain. He could tell I was nervous. I'll never forget; he patted me on the shoulder, smiled and said with a wink, "Welcome to the show!". Right after than, a horn blew, everyone yelled and we ran onto the field. It might have been the most hyped I've ever been in my entire life.
