Quotes:

On feeling pressure during the pro day:
“I think, first and foremost, is the Army commitment, and then next is the Academy giving us the opportunity to do this. Nothing is guaranteed, so working hard for everything. Even when you’re working hard, the pressure almost isn’t there anymore. You’re doing something that you love and probably have dreamed about since you were a little kid, so the pressure may be in the background a little bit, but when you’re doing it, it’s kind of just having fun.”

On catching the ball during drills:
“I did show them I’m somewhat of an athlete at least.”

On being back on the field and the possibility of playing in the NFL:
“I’m truly blessed to be in the position that I am, with all the opportunities that have been presented to me, I’ve tried to take advantage of every single one. You never know what’s going to happen, so there’s no reason why I’m not trying, but I feel like if it’s meant to be, it’ll happen. I did all I could to be in the position that I am in, and trying to further that, but I’m excited to see what the future holds, whether it’s in my Army career or something else.”

Quotes:

On the opportunity to participate in pro day:
“I finished kicking as a senior and I just looked at this like, I’m just ready to have fun. How many people can say they went to a Pro Day. I think it went pretty well. I didn’t come in with any expectations because I just said, I want to see how I do. It’s a benchmark. I did bench pretty well.”

On how he felt the New York Giants scouts thought he performed:
“They’re NFL coaches. They’re pretty quiet about it. They gave me some nods on some good kicks. They were impressed by a few, but I’m not going to speak for the Giants.

On the significance of Thursday:
“To have this, means the world to me.”
