*This is an older interview answers could have changed.

I had the privilege of interviewing Sergio Phillips an Offensive Guard and member of the 2013 football recruiting class. Sergio Phillips is from from DeSoto High School in DeSoto, Texas. He is 6 foot 3 and weights 300 pounds. Sergio is ranked the 52nd best offensive guard in the class of 2013 and is ranked 3 stars by scout.com. I created a list of 11 questions that I believe our audience would find interesting about the life of a young football recruit. These are the questions that I asked Sergio, followed with his answers.
