1. What was the team highlight of the season?

ODIGHIZUWA: I would say definitely making it to the playoffs was the highlight of our season. Being able to get 11 wins under our belt and stuff like that was a real highlight for the team.

2. What's one thing you learned about yourself this season?

ODIGHIZUWA: One thing I learned about myself is, personally, I'm a resilient person. No matter what I may face – good or bad or indifferent – I feel like this season has been a real learning process for me and really taught me a lot about just staying the course.

3. What's the biggest improvement you or the team made?

ODIGHIZUWA: We added some key guys at key positions and it really paid off for us, especially on defense with our D-line and out back end. Just adding those key free agents was key for our defense.

4. What are your offseason goals?

ODIGHIZUWA: Just get back into really, really, really good shape. Train really, really hard. Come back for our offseason program in April in really good shape. I'm ready to train and improve for my third season.

5. What are your offseason plans outside of football?

ODIGHIZUWA: I'm going to travel a little bit, check out some different spots. I'm going to meet some people, network a little bit. That's pretty much it so far. I'm in the process of looking at where right now. My girlfriend and I are planning a vacation, so we've got some different vacation ideas in mind.
