How does it feel to be a Super Bowl Champion?

It's a great feeling. Many people go through their entire career without reaching that point. Doing it in my first year was better than you could imagine. Winning a National Championship one year and the Super Bowl the next are both high points in my life.

How is training camp going?

Training camp went well. I was ahead of where I was when I came into camp. I already knew what was going on and I felt like I had a head start.

What are your likes/ dislikes of training camp?

I can't really complain. The 2-a-days allow you to get better. Training camp is necessary.

What are your favorite types of lifting exercises, give us an example of your favorite circuit training?

Bench, curls, and squats. I like to mix my training up. I run 4 times a week and lift 3 times a week.

Do you have a strict diet you stick to during the season & what does it consist of?

I try to keep a consistent well balanced diet. I eat at least 3 times a day. I love seafood and pasta, but I don't just stick to that.

What is it like to play with the likes of Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison?

It's cool playing with Peyton and Marvin. I am a big fan of both of them but they are teammates first. I enjoyed watching them while I was in college. We all have our jobs to do and it is great working with them.
