Interview with Gerald McCoy

No, not Colt, Gerald. Probably a better pro. Gerald McCoy is projected as a top 3 pick of this year's NFL draft and probably one of the nicest guys in college football. He was a defensive lineman for the Oklahoma Sooners.

BW: What team do you want to play for in the pros?
GM: I don't necessarily have a favorite team. I just wish every team fits my playing style the best.

BW: What was it like playing for a national title? (Against Florida two years ago)
GM: It was a lot of fun. I mean, not many people get to do that. I'm sure you'll probably wanna do it one day. So it was a lot of fun and a great experience.

BW: What was it like playing for [Coach] Bob Stoops?
GM: Bob Stoops is the man. Coach Stoops is a great coach.

The best answer I got all weekend was from an old All-American, John Elway. Elway is known for his great fourth quarter drives, and when I asked, "What was going through your heads during those drives?" he turned away from the autographs he was signing and said, "I didn't want to lose." Classic.

If you go to the top of the article and to the right you can see my pictures from the Walter Camp Weekend.

Interview with Toby Gerhart

Toby Gerhart is this year's Heisman runner up and argubly was the best halfback in college football this year. He decided to go to the NFL Draft this year even though he had an extra year due to an injury year in 2007. This interview was recorded at the Walter Camp in New Haven, Connecticut.
Fun fact: I interviewed him in an elevator leaving my hotel room.

BW: What team do you want to play for in the draft?
TG: (chuckles) It doesn't matter man. Whatever will give me a shot to play.

BW: You think you should've won the Heisman this year?
TG: (chuckles(again)) Nah, I mean, of course you wanna win it, but it turned out the way it is and Mark's a good guy. So I have no complaints.

BW: What made up your decision to go pro this year?
TG: A little bit of everything. I'm just ready to go. I have the chance, so I might as well.

BW: If you came back this year, do you think you would've won it (the Heisman)?
TG: Would I have won it. I have no idea.

Interview With Mathias Kiwanuka

Mathias Kiwanuka is a defensive end for the New York Giants. He was picked 32nd overall in the 2006 Draft and was actually the last player announced at the draft by Commissioner Paul Tagliabue. Here is my interview with the Giants star:

BW: What is it like playing for a Super Bowl team?
MK: It's phenomenal. When you got that kind of energy and experience and players who've achieved the ultimate goal.

BW: Did Bill Sheridan deserve to be fired?
MK: (chuckles) Honestly my focus on the team is to work as hard as I can work. I can control what I can control and I understand that there's business decisions that get made that will beyond my knowledge or control.

BW: Are you going to make the playoffs next year?
MK: I know we're going to make it. I have a lot of confidence in our team and we got a good group of guys coming back and we're hungry.
