- Lists his parents, Guss and Christa, as the most influential people in his life. He also gives credit to his grandfather, Willie B. Armstead, an Air Force veteran, for instilling the value of integrity that his parents have passed along to him. "A lot of things he instilled in my dad have carried down to me. Having a family member who is more courageous than you can imagine and who served his country is a huge honor."
- Played both basketball and football at Oregon before focusing only on football in 2014. During Super Bowl 50's Media Day, Armstead joined Sacramento's ABC10 sports team as a reporter to learn what it is like to cover NFL players during one of the most hectic events of the year. Held at SAP Center in San Jose, Armstead interviewed former teammates, fans, media members and Miss Universe. "It's like a feeding frenzy - everyone running around, and being part of that frenzy was a unique experience," said Armstead during the event.
- For Armstead, the NFL Draft process was a whirlwind tour. He went straight from the National Championship Game to San Diego to prepare for the NFL Combine and then to Sacramento for the Draft itself. However, his favorite part of the process was being drafted by a team so close to his hometown. "It's a dream come true. I'm blessed to be in this situation. Not a lot of other people are that close to home. Being able to play home games in front of my family is perfect for me."
