@MrSportsLeak: Could you introduce yourself and describe your background?

"Anthony (The Gut) Johnson Sr., I have been playing football since I was 5 years old and I fell I love with the game. What brought me to FIU was the D-line coach at the time Andre Patterson. He was a great man and an even better coach."

I'm really impressed by the film you sent me! Do you consider yourself a better DE or DT? 

"I consider myself as an all-around versatile defensive lineman.  Someone who can play the whole front 7."

What do you consider to be your strong suit: pass rushing or taking up space and stopping the run? 

"My strong suit would definitely be my ability to pass rush from different positions."

If you could compare your game to one former or current NFL player who would it be, and why? 

"I would compare my game to a Cameron Jordan.  He’s a bigger defensive end who is one of those guys that can also move down inside and pass rush from inside if needed."

What do you bring to a fan base off the field? 

"Off the field, I’m big about community service. I’m extremely active in the community so a lot of community service is what I would bring."

What’s one thing you could still improve on?

"I could definitely improve on my run game.  Over the years, I’ve gotten better but that’s still something I’m focusing on."
