GB: What is your favorite football moment at USD?
DG: Beating Minnesota at TCF last year.
GB: If you were Coach Meierkort for one day what would you do?
DG: See how many crazy stuff I could get the players to do at practice. Maybe some somersaults and duck walks.
GB: How many pencils do you lose a week?
DG: At least seven. I’ll for sure misplace one per day, sometimes two. Each pencil won’t last for more than a day.
GB: Who is always the sweatiest player on the football team after practice?
DG: Brent Johnson; he always looks like he just got out of a swimming pool.
GB: Super power you wish you had?
DG: To fast forward and rewind time.
GB: What’s your hidden talent?
DG: I have the best jokes. For example: Have you heard about the corduroy pillow? It’s making headlines.

GB: What was your first job?
DG: Pizza delivery boy.
GB: Would you rather sack the quarterback or intercept a screen pass?
DG: Intercept a pass. I have never done that in college, so I think that would be pretty neat.
