Q: I know you were a pretty good basketball player back in the day. Do you remember the first time you ever dunked?
A: I dunked in sixth grade. It was in my middle school gym. It wasn't in a game. We were just practicing. I kept trying and trying to dunk and finally made it.
Q: Did Bob Huggins ever approach you while you were at West Virginia, at least for some scout team work?
A: No, but I used to talk to one of the assistant coaches because he actually knew my father from playing basketball at Duquense University. All the football guys would joke with coach Huggins because we would see a lot of basketball players at our rec, at the West Virginia Rec for their open gyms. So we'd see coach Huggins and those guys and we'd say 'Hey, coach, let us run. Let us get a couple games in.'
Q: What is the longest conversation you have ever had with Geno?
A: The longest conversation I ever had with Geno was talking about the Burgh. He calls it the Burgh. Anything about Pittsburgh, he calls it the Burgh. Not about the (Steelers), but the city. We talk about the Burgh.
Q: Speaking of your hometown, that's where you recorded the first full sack of your career. Was that special for you to do it there in front of your family and friends?
A: I would say yeah. To have my first sack against Ben (Roethlisberger). I think it was more appreciated by my family than anything, my mom and dad especially. When Ben got drafted I was in seventh grade, so to be able to sack him after my parents had watched him for so many years. That was a good thing for them to see, along with all my friends and everyone. It was a good moment.
