"I think the people that don't understand are maybe the people that haven't played football, or the media. If you have a chance to take care of your family, you might as well do what's right for you and your family. If that's sitting out a college game to prepare for one of your dreams, go ahead and do it," he said. "I definitely don't have any regrets. Getting hurt in my last game is unfortunate. But at the same time, that whole year was a great year. I was blessed to be one of the captains that year. If I could do it all over again, I definitely would go back and play in the national championship in my last game."
