When you come to camp, what must you remember to bring?

I just pack enough clothes to get through camp for a couple of weeks. Maybe, bring an iPod and definitely bring your playbook back to the room every single time.

Who is the person you hang out the most with during camp?

Probably Joe Jon Finley. We've lived together in an apartment before and we go back to our days of playing Pop Warner together.

Who provides the most laughs at camp?

A lot of the o-line guys are really funny; Eric Heitmann, David Baas, Adam Snyder, and Joe Staley.

What is the best thing about camp?

It's getting out here and starting a new season. It's always exciting to get it started up again and see how far we've come over the offseason and see how much we've improved.

What's the worst thing about camp?

I'd have to say the long hours. You have to put in the time, but it gets kind of a drag after awhile.

What's your funniest camp moment?

The rookie talent show stuff. There's always a bunch of good skits. Last year, the special teams guys really did the best job.

**What's the hardest drill at camp?



The inside running plays when it's just nine on offense versus seven on defense. The defense knows we're running up the middle, we know we're running up the middle, and everybody's going as hard as they can.

If you could change one thing about training camp, what would it be?

I wish there were more hours in the day. I wouldn't change the practice or the meetings; just have a few more hours in the day to enjoy.

Which player is the most upbeat during camp?

Isaac Bruce always has a smile on this face. Every single time I see him, he's always got a smile on.

What guy changes their clothes the least during camp?

That's probably a tie between a lot of guys, but I think Joe Staley's on day four right now with the same outfit on.
