Star was on the Panthers radio show tonight. He drew a big crowd and managed to sign for everyone. His wife, children, and brother were there as well. Star said he loves Charlotte, everyone has been polite to him and helped him adjust.
He said the biggest adjustment for him in the NFL has been learning to penetrate (giggity). In college he played with a wide stance and occupied blockers at the line of scrimmage. Here in Carolina he is expected to burst off the line and compress the pocket.
He said it's nice playing with guys like Hardy and CJ because they demand all the game planning from opponents which is a relief for him as a rookie. He says KK is tied to his hip. Whenever KK gets in trouble he gets yelled at (by coach Washington) and whenever he messes up KK gets yelled at too.
He says the rookies are a tight knit group and he's glad the team is winning to keep the veterans happy. He says when the Veterans are happy, everyone is happy.
They asked him about his wife and he said he just asked her to marry him, nothing fancy, he's not romantic.
He talked about all the stuff that came out at draft time, he spent a year out of football, started focusing on football when he became a family man. He doesn't party, just comes home and plays video games.
One of his favorite guys to learn from is Haloti Ngata.
He comes off as a nice guy. Pretty quiet. He was very polite to the fans, thanked everyone.
