I feel like Duro Walkers, dead, longgone, so Youre Scot Ome crazis on legacy, and I everybody won to anowedge me o door,Scott. I gotyou that's deep and Dope so yeah what about going into last Yaanto what was it? What was your overall experience like with it and what wasactually what was your first reaction when you guys got picked for the show it just my first action was: is man we gonna Goto, so Lih? So I've been watching last chance, youlike, since it came out since like Runna Ali Dj long like I sait right, Ididn't know huge Fendin em ever since son and I'm watching it. I'm like. Okay,like man Ithis, is crazy, so once we found out that we going to be ontbecause we heard rumors about it, but NEU Brest, my way so on we found outabout its man. So we knows we get a lot of pressure on us. You know we gottahave a good season, because if you don't have a decent season, everybodyisgoing to talk about is we know we got to create a good brand, because if wedon't have a good brand, everybod O he's a go fotball player, but he hasthis issue. He has that issue. So an t was really just for us. We alltalked about creating a good brand for yourself, because this so will followyou for lifetime. So I think when the time first came out,we was all nervous like we was Al Esid.

I didn't know what to do. You know whatto say: ECAUSE WE WERDN'T TRYG to do too much because we try to act. Ourcharacter, Buto time show up a little bit and then, as the season Ral on it was justnatural like they were just familys to UN. So everything was jus naturallydidn't feel weirathing like that Yeh. So, going back to my firstquestion W, what was your overall experience like working with the lastchance to producers and all that it was great I'm? I was scared to really tell thimon store because I felt too embarrassd oe talk about itas then. So me letting myself out like back. Thatwas the first time I ever let myself out like that, because I don't liketalking ot my finess to nobody, because I don't want to feel that pain of beinghurt and being let down so for me. Tho really come out to the world like that,for the first time was losing me and I'm glad I did it. Yeah Yeah for sure yeah definitely tooka lot of courage. Have you ever have you ever heard of Ben Baller and Bob? I?No you never like in any of the songs likeBen Baller. Did the chain Noso anyways, whatever he's really he's, reallyfamous e, he has a podcast too, and he was talking about you and rj so ove toSendinoyou. So you could check it out because he was feeling he was feelingyou guys, because he was like he had the same like a weird relationship withhis dad too. So he was like he was just like feeling some type of way about itokayyeah. It was deep, though you gotta check it out all right, yeah and then to do it all over again. Would you doit all over again, like last Yan't, you yeah? I would do allver again justbecause it was a great experience and it really. I learned a lot about me and know like where's, my Hurd coming fromwhere's, my anger coming from and I wull do it but again, but I wouldn'tchange manythings to honest Jus love how Cheesan Wen, maybe maybe I couldhave caught a couple more balls. I can't I can't really o playing about the experience, becauseIy e really experience for me yeah and it seems like it was a trendthat every singling the quarterbag our but this season it was like fourquarteracs. So I don't know if that's like a lastchance, you curse or what but and then I know you subbed tin, to bequarterback like what was that like to? How long has it been since you playyCalgl t bou like two years I two years yeah he's been two years ince I playcock and I like I thought I was Don Qorterbyo and so really Ryan got hurt. That scared me becauseOnkay this is this is my goy. We had chemistry, so my man guy who gotabechemistry together, he's heard. So I don't know what to do so now ave to beon canny's head because, like I got to...

...maksure he's rer, he knows what to do.He just be on tack, so you can't we don't lose a step, but then Wen i findlike he got hert and then Carson got hurt because he came through the ball.I was like man like it was crazy. It was really we really have fourquarterbacks. It was a freshman, but he quit going into the arc game like hedidn'te show for a bus, so it was just kinny all along for arcgame and then once we found out Kenny got her. That's when everybody was like:Okay, who's gonna be quarterback whas going to happen. So when I found ut Iwas going to quarterback. I got scared because I went back to my high schooldays. Tine I didn't knew is good in high schooldays and everybody was talking about me. So I don't know what I'm gonna do so atfirst, like the first day, it was always nervous because I didn't knowwhat to do, but then IAS, daysmen ones it felt good and like Fresto, win gamesand know, I'm doing wit something good Isnot thisis good. was there any otheroptions at quarterback or you were the only on we brought in a kid and then we Didt y Kiti, an dad didn't work out. was anyone like what about was anyonetrying to like recruit anyone just like on campus htelseho else? was he I think it wasAlens? He Wa in the quarterback row and I think maybe like one day it was rjand it could have been like it. But then ourday became like the Emergenquarter. Ba diskis hit got hurt, righ, that's that's crazy. No, it was. It was all over the place.Man. We did not expect that to happen. Yeah now going back into your highschool days. Did you have any offers coming out of high school? No Thin? I got witinterest that WassexState Co Loi and what happened was what happened? Was He gave me anofficial official invite to a game me and my father? We got to a fight watlike the day or two days before and he was like yeah you're not going to thatinvite. So it's okay. We got into a fine gas that that's what happened so Iemailed himwas like yes, some stup happing, my father. Maybe we can we schedule again so okay,so we we schedule another game and then O. I had pictures at football presturesthat day and I went to go, take them and then, when I went back, my fotherwas like yeah we're not going. You should have never went to e. You Shun never went to the picturesbecause once we go is GOINGTO, be too late. Tea O talk to the coaches andstuff like that. So after that he just went ghost on me. Ihave no interest of him in that Yeaan. Then I know you didn't have that. Areyou do't have any offers either aut of lany no lay dont, even how even thedtwo schools no...

...yeah, no ti they talkd to me and justnever felt through. So that's that's crazy and then what's your relationshipwith coach bean like now and before so, let's talk about before so before theCamerais like whe first came in at Ta, freshman being even know who I was. Itwas called Roppo recuiting me so meme a sone. I think he's like, like. I justthink he thought in his hail or just like another kids coming trough. So wesee once we got tha relationship like we became close or stuff like that, andthen after is, is we're still close lie. He helped me out a lot like the island is a whole bunch of familistat. I going to help me just because of bean, because that's how connect he ison the island, so I have a whole Butim y Famil is mes like agot ded, so ITUsbeen a pretty good amount of people and trying to help me out, go coash me anMi rely appreciate that yeah and then, throughout the wholeseason, Youw're doing a lot. You're working you're liming out of a car. What what? What like kept? Youmotivated, there's me just wint to get that be onscholarship you neen on. If I get that scholarship everything's going to be good like Inever I never had a plan bocause. I never had a motivational Goa or going to tveshowtalk. I just won up an attack the day that was it i I myhad was like. If Ikeep thinking about him, I'm just Goingno keep thinking about negativeand I' just keut felling at it. So May meus go up, get up and wake up and keepgoing to keep driving. I got some fan questions. Are you ready for H, m yeah, someone askd? They want to know if youexplored Hawaii, I have when my coach marry. I exploredthe whole island, so I'm in Awago. So when I first GA Awhy, I thinkin likeall the iys were connected and like you can us like drop to another island butos elvinis wrong. So no so I traveled a while and like it'sa beautiful place, so I think I'm Gonto get into it more tesomwher go like the central Vallue of it. I've been like Oln, the outscirsofTavtin. Have you have you been? I know it'slike Covid, but have you been able to like tour the campus yeah before Cole hit? I was in CI Biso.I know I'm familiar with the campus right now. Another fan question your mindset going in to Laney. Is itthe same as walking on to Hawaii? I think I my siggoin Hawaii is way moreaggressive than when it was Ilaney because it lanny, I was trying to provemyself thit for me- was just okay, I'm just trying to be a freshman and playand get some playing time, because I nose and Softoye every team. So if Iget some plant on, I w'll be happy for Rit up right now me and being awalk on is like every daywill, opportune wit, like Aulthists, can goaway because I'm gant walk on. So I'm...

GIN NEAT that straight Doman Talle withme every day, whene I step on the field or in the weightroom, because I knowthere's kids, who got money for this and they're. Gettingpaid t do this, so I need to beat that kid out, so I can get his spy. Whatwould you tell your younger self? We Thats Omi ESO DIS man just keep griding just now, toughin!There's! No life is going to get hard for you. This Min just keep grinding.Don't worry about anybody else's! Kid isworried about you and really don't let yourself don't close doors for yourself, becauseyou're too shyy to tell how you feel you to Nerv tell you feel, does reallybe open because be smart about it too. So another fan question I don't know, Idon't know if this one's real or not they said. Can you please elaborate onyour love for rug, rats and Wade box? So what's it called it? forthe show likethey had me, Wearin a whole bunch of rug, raps, Ger and NI. I love roterRastis, I'm on come myself a nines baby, but I was I was two thousand baby, so Ithink I have best of both worlds, so it is rety, but no, I love ruge basseswatching as a kid and this now that I can really rockit and, like nobody elsehad that shirt. So I fel, I felt pretty amazed so I had like three shirts ofthose and I got now just got me a Jean Jacket with the red restaurant on hisI'm, a key Rockin, yre, rasts and a way Bog Jersey, thats, is, I didn't know I's. Like I didn't knowit was a sembol to bead. I didn't know like he was a I oas, a based on playerBer. I didn't know he was like that big. So you just it just ascert that Ithought itwas pretty cool, that's pretty funny, because I was actually asubsitute teacher, I'm pretty sure the kids didn't know what the rug rats wereso that'. That's refreshing because M, I'm twenty eight! So I definitely knowwhat the rug rats are. But I know it's getting past that age, which is weirdto me: Yeah, what Wade bogersdid you have the Tepadevil rage, okay, yeah, yeah, yeah, on's, fresh and then last Fan, questionSOM. They asked you. Would you ever consider motivational speaking? No, I I can't really talk, I'm just really. I'm a leader body's that by action tohemanage O me talking I' know. I can't talk because I'm Notma Stutter, I knowI might forget some stuff back and what I wrote down. So I know if I did becomemotivate speaker. That would take a lot for me because I'm still nervous talkto big crowds like that, so yeah, a n, really know you see wat the futureHobes now. I definitely feel you on that. Iremember I remember in college taking what Thet some speech classand you had to go upand like at first I was like no, it's not goit's easy and then you go upthere and then you're like it's kind of weird, even though it wasn't even thatmany people, as like thirty forty people right all right, you're readyfor the there's more fun questions...

...there, but they're going to go fromaverage: savage, okay, okay, who is one NFL player thatyou would want to do? A Jersey exchange with onoarsime, Webston, what' t teams, Yeof Younla Rams is act.Tois Kison Johnson is Sime, lersy Kison Docton is he plays for the and then Sim eter he plays for the LaRam she's on a wire receiver. To reason why I wantto do simlar webisite becausehe's my hometown hero like he played at der Vall, he played on my high schooland like seeing him now. He came up. It's just truly been an amazing story,so if one NAT can switch dreisy with him, that would be great and Ke son s. Hewent to President State, but he he knows some players from from lady and then we we got tapkingwith each other. So if IC get a drass o wit him he'sgoing not like how how good we're talking now and how ourclose were egitning Euch Ote is like out for showly Tro Fak Dresin, both ofthem, but now that as great for me, yeah, it's Tope you're, making me feelold with the Keisean Johnson, because I was iing about the Hoshi. Oh, my God I got. I can't I can't beinterviewing younger people, no more like this EA yeah. That's why I thought you saidbecause he was wie receiver so and I was like all right, Ke Shoun on allright, but anyways.
