Here is what the 23-year-old New England Patriots tight end had to share with the mag:
On growing up with fitness: “My father was in the fitness equipment business, so our basement was always a weight room.”
On being an awkward runner as a kid: “I wasn’t very coordinated as a kid. My running was sloppy because I got tall quickly. But once I got used to my body, I became more coordinated. My running is all cleaned up now.”
