Justin Godsey: How do you interact with your fellow Texas A&M fans?

Justin Godsey: Growing up what was your favorite College and Pro Football Team you watched while growing up ?
Randy Bullock: Growing up I loved watching Texas A&M. I have been an Aggie my entire life. I spent every Thanksgiving growing up glued to the tv watching the Aggies play the Longhorns. I also loved watching the New Orleans Saints. My family would always surprise me with saints tickets for my birthday.
Justin Godsey: Who did you grow up admiring in the National Football League
Randy Bullock: Growing up I loved watching Deon Sanders. He’s a great athlete. Any time he was on the field a big play was bound to happen.
Justin Godsey: Lets jump right into High School Football, Did you play other positions in HS other than Kicker if so hard was it playing 2 positions?
Randy Bullock: I pretty much only kicked in high school. I played fullback but we had a really good back in front of me on the depth chart so I only got limited reps but I really enjoyed it.
Justin Godsey: Tell us about your Senior Year, How emotional was it playing in final game
Randy Bullock: I saved my best year for my last. My goal was to make sure I didn’t have any regrets when I walked off the field for the last time wearing an Aggie jersey. My last game was very emotional. Our last game was our bowl game which was actually in my hometown of Houston. I had all my family and friends there. It was great. It hit me at the end of the third quarter that my time in an Aggie jersey was coming to the end. I got goosebumps hearing the Aggie War Hymn for the last time.
Justin Godsey: Tell us about your College Football Recruitment?
Randy Bullock: Recruit was fun for me. I had several offers to choose from but the decision was easy for me when A&M offer. Texas A&M was my dream school. There was no way I was going to turn down their offer. I remember it like it was yesterday when they called me to tell me to come by before the game that they had something special for it. My mom cried she was so happy for me.
Justin Godsey: Why did you choose Texas A&M over colleges like Rice, San Diego State, LSU and Florida
Randy Bullock: I chose A&M because I always wanted to go to school there. I grew up a huge Aggie fan. My brother also went to school there. It was great that my mom and brother had the opportunity to go to all of my games.
Justin Godsey: Were you nervous when you 1st hit the field at Kyle Field ?
Randy Bullock: Absolutely. My first start was against Kansas State my freshman year. I was nervous but excited. It was awesome to play for the 12th man for the last 4 years.
Justin Godsey: Tell us about your Sophmore year and your Bowl game vs Georgia?
Randy Bullock: My sophomore was up and down. I had a back injury early in the season that played through. We ended up going to the Independence Bowl that year. We play Georgia. That was my first game against an SEC team. It was a great experience. I’m looking forward to watching my team play in the SEC next season.
Justin Godsey: Tell us about your Junior Year at Texas A&M and also the Cotton Bowl vs LSU ?
Randy Bullock: My junior year started slow but I had a great year. I had mono for most of the summer. I scouts,ky wasn’t cleared to work out and practice until the day before two a days. It made it very difficult for me to prepare for the season. I didn’t hit full stride until about the fourth or fifth game of the season. The Cotton Bowl was a lot of fun. They treat you great there. You get all kinds of gear. It was the beat bowl experience I had while playing at Texas A&M.
Justin Godsey: This past year was your last year in Texas A&M how emotional were you in your last game at Kyle Field vs The Texas Longhorns ?
Randy Bullock: I was emotional at times. It was hard not to be emotional on senior night. I will never forget getting my name called and running out that last time. Our last game against TU made it even more emotional. That was the last time we will play Texas for a long time since we made the move to the SEC.
