GS: Everything has been going really good. I'm just trying to keep my commitment to the Naval Academy, and just trying to stay active in the weight room.
SM: How does it feel to know that everything has been signed, sealed, and delivered?
GS: It's a big relief. It's really cool that I don't have to stress about a college decision or anything like that. It's good to already know where you're going. Now I can prepare for what I am going to be facing as far as for academics and football in college. It's just a big relief.
SM: What position(s) are they projecting you to play at the Naval Academy?
GS: They've been talking to me about outside linebacker, but they said that they will evaluate me once I arrive on campus. As far as whether I'll move to inside linebacker, it'll depend on my weight. They said that it'd be on a day to day basis.
SM: How good are your chances of competing for early playing time?
GS: When I spoke with Coach Ken in his office, I told him that coming in, I wanted to work hard and compete for a job. He said that I'll have an opportunity, and that the best man will play. I really feel that if I can outwork a few people, and that if I give my all to the team, I'll have an opportunity to contribute early.
SM: How are you looking academically right now?
GS: Right now I have 3.8 and I'm on the honor roll. So, I've really been working hard at it.
SM: How have you been able to maintain your focus?
GS: I know going into the academy that I've got to continue to keep my grades up, and continue to have a good work ethic. I know that I have to get everything in gear, and that the Academy isn't going to mess around. So, I've just been keeping that in mind
SM: Do you have in mind what you'd like to study at the Naval Academy?
GS: When I was on my visit, I met with the Economics professor, and it sounded like a good option for me. They don't really do a business type thing, so I think Economics is going to be my area.
