The last word

"You're always going to be nervous before a game. I've always said if you're not nervous before doing something that you love, it's not worth doing. I can tell you everybody in that locker room gets the butterflies before a football game and that's good. It keeps you light on your feet, keeps your mind racing but once that first play comes, once that first hit takes place it's back to playing football, back to doing what you do every day."
