What did you do during the off week?
I went home to South Dakota and watched my high school team in the state semifinals. We lost, which was a shame, because we were defending champs.
Your high school team plays nine-man football. Was that the case when you were there?
No. They switched to nine-man the year after I graduated (in 2013). We just didn’t have enough players because we’re such a small school. There are years when we only have 18 players.
Have you gotten a lot of ribbing this week because of your name?
Not too much. A few people have brought it up. Some people wanted me to change my name from Dallas to Philly, but that’s not going to happen.
