Scott Porter: What do you feel are your biggest strengths?
Javier Arenas: I feel as though my biggest strengths are in my head. My mental intensity and my "want to" are what help me stand out as a ball player.


Scott Porter: What goals do you have for the upcoming season at Alabama?
Javier Arenas: The goals that WE have are simple. We want to be the best individual players that we can possibly be, and know how to do that by playing in the moment by not worrying about anything else and being intoned, and we will subconsciously come together as a team and be great. Everything else will take care of itself.


Scott Porter: What goals do you have for the NFL?
Javier Arenas: I hope I have the opportunity to play in the NFL. But that'll come when and if it comes, God willing!


Scott Porter: What type of a player and person is an NFL team getting in Javier Arenas?
Javier Arenas: If an NFL team picks me up they're getting an animal, literally. They're getting someone whom is married to the game and most importantly, someone they can turn there back to and know he's still going to do his job.


Scott Porter: Is there a player in the NFL that reminds you of yourself?
Javier Arenas: Honestly, no. I'm answering that in terms of the way I approach the game mentally. But as far as the way I play, I believe in everyone being different and having their own game, so that's something I never really thought about.


Scott Porter: What hobbies do you have a off the field?
Javier Arenas: Doing something that is going to improve me in some way shape or form, I love the word progress!


Scott Porter: Who has been your biggest influence?
Javier Arenas: My mother Facunda Arenas, my brother Armando Murrillo who played at Nebraska this past year and is now experimenting with the NFL and my mentor Romey Battle.





(September 21, GBNReport.com) -- Virginia Tech redshirt sophomore RB Ryan Williams is questionable at best for Saturday’s conference opener against Boston College after he injured a hamstring in last weekend’s win over East Carolina. The injury is not believed to be serious even though Williams had to be helped off the field and spent the second half on crutches, however, he has practiced on a limited basis this week.
