Rapid re­sponses

The Denver Post - - SPORTS -

The Den­ver Post asked Shane Ray five ques­tions to see what first came to his mind: Q: What is your go-to food when you’re back home in Kansas City? A: “Be­cause I grew up there — the bar­be­cue — I got tired of it af­ter a while. The first place that I nor­mally go is Church’s Chicken off 55th Street next to my grandma’s house. It takes me back to my child­hood.” Q: Who is the tough­est player you’ve ever gone against? A: “I want to give a lot of credit to An­drew Luck. I’ve never played against a quar­ter­back that big with that kind of pocket pres­ence. I’m bring­ing him down hold­ing on to both legs and he’s still get­ting the ball off. That’s im­pres­sive, be­cause I’m not a small guy and I’m com­ing with vi­o­lence.” Q: Who is your best friend among the Bron­cos? A: “I’ve got a hand­ful of guys — Tau­rean Nixon, Lorenzo Doss, Shaq Bar­rett. Those are my ev­ery­day guys. If any­thing goes wrong, I know I can call them.” Q: How do you want to be re­mem­bered? A: “When my ca­reer is done, they’re go­ing to say Shane Ray was an an­i­mal. He was re­lent­less. He was phys­i­cal and he’s go­ing to be a Hall of Famer.” Q: What’s your top ca­reer goal? A: “When­ever it is I’m the starter, I want to be a 15- to 20-sack guy. I want to beat Justin Hous­ton’s 22 sacks. I want to break the (league) record.”
