It's gonna I've either everybody that's silly about it so I really just don't buy hustle and good seats the game and that your California you from Bakersfield yes and urgently so you cannot go a different place like the Bakersfield and Buffalo, New York that's on once there. Baca in 1998 that. Now for the send I'm talking about your first cold game in buffalo we want them on the field what was that like. As cold as the about it the heated bench is sub restrictor what is let me get your guy you meet you your participating in eight to ten plays again. Yep right so we're pretty much data they're free to global challenges stand on the old game yeah. Earlier in the big sky conference and so we played a couple couple games of ladies and Washington wants honestly twin degrees on out there. And we get a full Ford Indians like the jackets and things are really freezing out there lose. Weight.

I mean it and they're these ridiculous and yet this. Well they keep you dry. OK I guess so we're way up again okay. The other thing I love about my fiscal Schmidt bills punter and you know that's so every company Nazi you guys like pitchers where like if you wanna beef that you totally can the epithet honors for years man. But let yourself go and candy. All the other big and scary out there at a Villa les looked the part okay we've talked this morning about like you know the guys that don't. Normally score all have their touchdown fantasies I know you have yours what is your touchdown fantasy where you can to cross the line how does it play your head with double him you live that far away governor gets that works. I feel like you rather than a game to stand there and freeze their tablets but would you run fake punts before rightly you've taken the ball and go on with it some way now never. Never had never thrown at all. No on the game ever so what you every time you touch is already up 100 street upon this going to be a record. Every other one point is that like a busted play where they had to take government with a you've never had to do that now and it just it. Well. Okay president elect resentment can disappointed when you have a real solid that keeps his face bush true a pillar of our knowledge about the singing thing just a pretty a particular if it's just. I mean you've been hit before you know I'm dummy I'm sure you remember every single one which was the one that heard the words. My rookie year we put the Jetsons I got hit pretty much instead of collecting cars as recently. If it's. Put. Like I know it's impossible to describe what you know these guys here they they're so used to it that it's it's impossible for them to put into words for normal person but like. What is that feeling when you have a large man flying at you that's his job is not a obliterate you mean what does that feel like you even realize what's happening. Yeah you definitely do but there's. Sometimes you have an unspoken agreement with them he made eye contact you know like. I don't know don't kill me you know like Coca. I know you've got to pass a young hundreds of people to look. So you put other positions in high schooler right which I guess hunter neither am I afraid to get in there says he has choose wisely what Leo what did you play when human rights defense tackle Casey you're a big guy well. Fries though you've gotten. So you go from. Getting the most action needed physical disc quality ever do the absolute least when you get to college yeah dollars and the biggest turning point six you know group playing soccer and thing. You have from mean you know starting every game captain all and then. The kicker and you play. I helped fuel cause he did you say it with lake district particularly. This is still exclusion. What did you know that you're going to be able to do this for a living and he bounced around a couple of teams a 49ers a couple of times the browns you went up catches in buffalo. Did you think you'd be able to make a living doing this. They're really click intimacy nearing college. Noises try to be getting aircraft you know in the then scouts are coming around so it's like okay now this is serious the scouts' own ligament Davis too often so. The sound you just love more OK and at that point what are the (%expletive) your college teammates off to right like I'm gonna get hurt you hit people and they will look at the damp honor. Yup I mean there's a tells a joke than leave right after I got done. Hello all walk outs off off ought to deal for some of the seniors out there hasn't gone cold to the Buffalo Bills punter hang out with us I mean so. How do you still have the impression that you might be able to play some other position other than punter like when they recruited you. Now Paulus that I applied Arnie turns turns after it just so excellent digger on the so you never ever really go to the coach of the tactically tight end or I can make a tackle if you need me to no way using mostly looks. Huge yeah you're right you want to us how easy or whether how far could you punt playbook. That's gonna go to put up and thus far is. Oh probably ten yards I think it's. Wright junior at a point now we like you know and I are starting to hate you and I even if your team to get a little playbook you could put it that way. But you know women we have our own plan to open its public drastically scaled down how many pages in the special as a template of a guy capable. You like tennis and end up. And he is that he just turned around backwards and just hit it left and right. Compared over it. I want your job like okay visit there at our fathers missing now in whose sons are young. And they always say the easiest way to make it to the show is long lived in a long snapper creek it's got a big leg what are you tell a father who once they're sent to be professional NFL punter. Use a starlet that season is ready in the college because even if you walk on a mean you delegate 2.0 GPA of callers. Public amicable and lovely yeah I strip. And in a ticket now the only serious scholarship and all that and houses I was in the Birmingham apartment explicitly and easily again but you also have all the fringe benefits of being an NFL player I mean you married engaged girlfriend no nothing. Now to a single month on terror. Yeah well enough there's a correlation there selling the so you don't even have you and it's amazing actually weaving is and I. So you get all the action your wallets. It how hard is that to convince somebody that you're a Buffalo Bill. Extremely hard line and a lot of kindness and like the guy the guys who shot a girl is not our public Eddie guy like that a barely any big dude come up DN say and the Buffalo Bills pushing reliving it volley unless he can kick you this. We have we have some pretty good stories about. As late last summer I was and there's a team you know apart bills here on and some mass open at junior college. It's. So I'm not a. I a week later I was there again some guy came to me and he aliases and it you might think thousands as you pretty good display go pro get a shot.
