NFL rook's secret? Candy in his sock
This story is a testament to the superstition of athletes and to the indiscriminate palates of young men.
"I’ve been doing this since high school,” he told Monumental Sports. “I have to have a yellow and a red Starburst, and I eat one before the game and I put the other one in my sock. Yeah, it sounds kinda nasty, but I mean, I’ve done it ever since high school.”
And he eats the sock one. Oh yeah, he eats it.
"At halftime," he said. "It tastes the same."
