On his nickname, AD, All Day

I've been hearing that since I was two. I ran around all the time. Never wanted to stop. Never wanted to sleep. I just kept going all day. My dad and mom gave me the nickname. When I started playing ball, my coaches said the same thing about how I played, that I could go all day.

Q: What do you think of being compared to Eric Dickerson?
A: Man, being compared to Eric Dickerson, that's crazy. He's one of the greatest running backs. It's an honor to be compared to him. A lot of guys say, you run in that upright position and have a little breakaway speed. But it's an honor.

Q: Do you feel you have similar style as Dickerson?
A: Yeah. Watching some of his film. I see the upright position and the power he runs with.

Q: Are coaches talking about changing your upright running style?
A: Yeah, my coaches always tell me. I'm still working on it a little bit, getting my shoulders a little lower, especially coming into this league. I'm working on it a little bit and improving.

the whole interview, he seems pretty humble

AD was on SR 610 this past Friday morning with John and Lance.
He was in studio, in person.
But he sounded like a real nice young guy. And he called Houston his second home cause I guess his hometown (Palestine, TX - right ?) is not too far north
of here. But he said he'd really like to stay home and play for the Texans.
But now that we are down to the #10 spot, said he didn't want to be taken that far down. And I don't think he has too much to worry about.
But he said he didn't want to play up north in the cold, but if you're right about Clevland, he may be out of luck ?
