NORFOLK, Va. - Old Dominion University football finished their third practice of the preseason this morning, their first in shoulder pads.  ODUSports.com will talk to a player every practice to let the fans get to know the Monarchs.

Today we take a look at redshirt freshman, C.J. Bradshaw.

ODUSports.com Q&A with C.J. Bradshaw – Running Back – Kinston, N.C.

When did you start playing football? Around 10-years-old playing in the Midget League.

Why Old Dominion? It was a rising team and I wanted to play on a winning team.

What did you learn as a redshirt freshman last year? Basically how to play running back. I was a quarterback in high school.

How is the transition going from a QB to a RB? It was hard, a big transition for me. Learning how to block and the small things took time.

How do you feel about playing in front of sold out crowds at Foreman Field? I am very excited to be out there on the field, it’s surreal. Our first game will be in front of 20,000, so I’m excited for that as well.

Favorite food? Pizza

What’s on your iPod? Lil Wayne, Gucci and French Montana

Favorite sports team? New York Jets

How is camp going? It’s going really well. I’m learning different things going through all the progressions.

What are your personal goals for the season? My goal is to get a starting position as a running back and continue to work hard.
