Beginning with the team trip out there, it was an amazing experience. We had a little bit better accommodations and travel arrangements than when I was in college at Richmond with the private plane and all that stuff. It was a great time, great place, and full of great learning.
Then the game itself was definitely a learning experience for me with my first action in the NFL. It’s definitely faster paced a more intense game than I’ve ever played before. I got a lot out of it, made some plays, made some tackles, and then it’s back to the film.
On the fumble, it was kind of my first rep in there on the punt team. I got an opportunity to make a play and was able to execute it. It was an exciting time to finally make a play. I was glad I could do it to help the team at that spot.
