I donâ€™t know if I really have a particular view, I just kind of (buy) whatever I see at the store that I like that I think fits me. Itâ€™s hard for me to find clothes because Iâ€™m so tall, and itâ€™s really hard for me to find clothes that fit me right. Itâ€™s a challenge. You definitely have to be patient when youâ€™re looking for clothes.
How do you describe your style?
More of a preppy style, but just whatever looks good on me at the particular time Iâ€™m shopping.
What are your favorite pieces?
I have three pairs of Cole Haan shoes and theyâ€™re the best shoes ever. They fit me perfectly.
Where is your favorite place to shop?Â
I like to shop in department stores. I like Macyâ€™s, Dillardâ€™s. I like to go to outlet stores, too, and Saks Fifth Avenue, Brooks Brothers and J. Crew.
Who is your fashion icon, and why? Â
Maybe Tom Brady. Thereâ€™s no one really that I just look to. But, I look at GQ magazine whenever I get a haircut.
Whoâ€™s the most stylish on UofLâ€™s football team?Â
Iâ€™d say Coach (Ron) Dugans, he was always trying to look pretty. He has the flashy car, and he always has nice loafers and shoes, and he always has a nice suit.
Have you received your Sugar Bowl ring yet?
No, I havenâ€™t actually. I should ask Coach Strong whatâ€™s taking so long.
Are you from Louisville originally?Â
I was born here. I moved around a lot, and I went to high school in Florida. Thatâ€™s where I got recruited. My dad (Gary Nord) actually played at Louisville as well. He played tight end, too. Thatâ€™s a big part of the reason for me wanting to come here. All my family lives here.
Why did you want to work in sales after graduation?Â
I thought sales would be a good place to start, get some good experience. I didnâ€™t want to sit at a desk all day, I wanted to interact with people, and I thought sales would be fun. Just kind of something different that can prepare me for any career.
