“When I first started playing, I was surprised at the fact that I was allowed to hit people as hard as I could and not get in trouble. Because in soccer, when you get to a certain level, you can slide-tackle and take them off their feet, but you have to always hit the ball first and then take that person out. But in football, that’s not true. You can run as hard as you can into somebody else and take them down. Thumbs up!
“But as far as I know, I’ve never hurt anybody through playing the game of football.”
